Brunswick Main Street collaborates with artist Parran Collery

Paint a tile and help create an outdoor sculpture for Brunswick! Frederick County and Brunswick Main Street have hired artist Parran Collery to make a sculpture and the Brunswick community can participate. The finished sculpture will be made of brightly glazed mosaic tiles and will sit near the Brunswick Train Station.

People of all ages are invited to paint their own 5” clay tile. Kits that include the tile, paints, and tools will be handed out this Saturday, June 13, from 2-4 p.m., at the gazebo in Square Corner Park in Brunswick, corner of Potomac and Maple (please wear a face mask). Painted tiles should be returned to the same location the following Saturday, June 20, at the same time, or make other arrangements during pick-up.

No special skills are needed to do this – only creativity and a desire to see your very own design on public display. Instructions are included with the kits. A You Tube instructional video can be seen at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=A5MAv4nLFvU&t=18s.

There is a limit of one tile per person, although one person can pick up more for others in their family or group. It is important that at least 60 tiles from Brunswick are returned to make this project a success. Questions about the project may be emailed to Design@brunswickmainstreet.org.
