“Unsung Heroes Art Exhibition” celebrates Takoma Park city employees

Many City of Takoma Park employees perform important work every day that goes unheralded and unsung, but the City would grind to a halt without them. Local artist Renee Lachman will be honoring City employees – members of AFSCME Local 3399 — in a new series of paintings and charcoal drawings, including sanitation workers, gardeners, crossing guards, and library staff. A free opening reception for the Unsung Heroes exhibition will be held this Thursday (see Calendar) at 7:30 p.m. in the Takoma Park Community Center (7500 Maple Avenue). “These sanitation workers remind me of Olympic  athletes with all their running and lifting of heavy trash, old furniture, yard waste, and broken tree limbs through all kinds of weather,” Lachman said. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve celebrated the work of doctors, nurses, and firefighters. I wanted to highlight Takoma Park’s other unsung heroes.” Read more here.
