Creating Community Art Projects in Reservoir Hill

In late 2012, a group of residents began meeting to plan for changes at John Eager Howard Recreation Center to create a softer and distinctive exterior. We are excited to announce that we have partnered with Mosaic Makers to create a mosaic mural on the exterior of the center. Mosaics are works of art created by assembling small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials to create images or patterns. Check out the examples below!

This will be the first in what we hope will be a series of community art projects, each one designed and built by community members under the guidance of Mosaic Makers.

All ages are welcome – everyone can contribute!
There is no prior art experience necessary!

Bring your ideas for what you want in a community mosaic.
What words, images, and messages would you like to communicate?

Join Groundswell to hear how you can lower your energy cost

Anyone who pays an electricity bill in Baltimore has the right to choose where their electricity comes from. This choice creates an opportunity for us to come together and collectively purchase clean electricity. Through combined purchasing power, Groundswell, a non-profit, working with Reservoir Hill and other communities in DC and MD negotiates reduced prices for energy.  This is an opportunity to save money and have a positive social impact.

Brett Wiley of Groundswell will speak with participants about what to look out for from energy suppliers and how you can join your neighbors to build community power.
