With initial funding from the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority, the CDC developed customized mapping and commissioned DC-area artist Charles Bergen (now working from Gateway Arts District-based studio!) to design & build, three sculptural signage kiosks for deployment along the Rhode Island Avenue Trolley Trail. And with supplemental funding from the Redevelopment Authority of Prince George’s County for installation and anticipated commissions from the City of Hyattsville for additional placements, these kiosks will promote trail usage, connectivity between local commercial centers, and increase the visibility of public art along this much needed trailway.
