Make art, take art! ART M.A.G.N.E.T. (Mini Art Gallery Neighborhood Entertainment Tour), is a public art project created by Operation ARTS Foundation to encourage creative community interaction through art! This project was created with support from Maryland Milestones and Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council as well as sponsorship from the Town of Edmonston and the Gateway Community Development Corporation. The goal of this project is to encourage creative community interaction through semi-guided art themes organized through social media. Please enjoy the tiny art made by local creatives and feel free to leave something beautiful yourself. Follow @artmagnetmd to stay up to date on all the free little art gallery activities and curated bi-weekly artwork themes. Tag us with your photos and videos on our social media so we can share your story behind the art.
