See information here on a project linking the Lakeland and the University of Maryland. Images from the LCHP archives are being used for inspiration. Follow the link above for updates as the project continues.
The Heritage Project is working with the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities and other University of Maryland partners to do interviews and improve our digital archive. Grant funding has been secured for a group of interns to work on the project this summer. We are thrilled to have both Lakeland teens and University of Maryland students on the intern team.
Work starts next week on a mural featuring historic Lakeland images. Artist for the project are teen artists lead by local professionals. Among the mual crew are two young Lakelanders. The project is being undertaken by the College Park City – University Partnership along with Maryland- National Capital Park and Planning Commission, College Park Arts Exchange and the University of Maryland. This artwork will be on the walls of the pedestrian underpass of Baltimore Avenue at Lakeland Road on the pathway.
The area will have artistic lighting. That element of the project is complete. The ribbon cutting will be held soon.
