She is “incredibly thrilled” to see her artwork on the streets, feeling it to be a kind of celebration of her 42 years living in the neighborhood. On the day the groundhog predicted an extended winter, Linda Norton‘s and Tara Hamilton‘s artwork displayed on Capitol Hill lampposts brought a splash of color to… ... Read More

  • Works by Vince, Linda N, and Tara in CHAL Artists’ Choice exhibit
