TAKOMA PARK COMMUNITY CENTER
Art Room, Tile Backsplash
Seniors at the Takoma Park Community Center and the Franklin Apartments glazed Bisque tiles and contributed buttons, jewlery that became part of the piece. Alice Sims and Laurie Stepp designed the backsplash, worked with Seniors and assisted with the permanent installation in the Takoma Park Community Building art room.
LONG BRANCH COMMUNITY CENTER SENIORS
Silver Spring, MD
AFTP held three ceramic workshops where seniors constructed clay tiles of flowers and leaves. Artists Alice Sims and Laurie Stepp constructed five acrylic cement "plants" to which the glazed tiles were attached. The finished sculptures were permanently installed at the entrance to the center and replaced an unsightly, empty planter. The Community Center serves a large immigrant population.
