Completed in June 2013, the Hyattsville Community Development Corporation (CDC), with the support of County Councilmember Will Campos, implemented its Street Art Initiative for the Gateway Arts District. The public art program connected a total of 18 small business/property owners with 8 area artists to use 19 building exteriors as canvasses along Route 1. Artists’ qualifications were reviewed and juried for consideration, then a preferred artist was selected by each participating owner. Murals vary in style and scale. The program was funded by M-NCPPC Department of Parks and Recreation, Arts & Cultural Heritage Division. The Gateway Arts & Entertainment District is comprised of commercial segments of Hyattsville, North Brentwood, Brentwood, and Mount Rainier.
