The Wheaton Arts Parade and Brookside Gardens collaborated with 16 artists from Montgomery County to put together an outdoor exhibit that features 13 unique pyramids.
Each pyramid tells a story and includes a QR code which can be scanned to hear a recording from the artist explaining their work and creative process, according to the Wheaton Arts Parade website. The stories range from colorful fantasies to captivating culture with one even depicting El Salvador from memories of Wheaton families.
The pyramid shape for the artwork was inspired by the “Wheaton Triangle” where Wheaton is formed from the intersection of three state highways. Since the annual Wheaton Arts Parade and Festival wasn’t held last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the art was brought outside to allow county residents to view it safely using the same shape that is typically featured on posters for the “Parade the Triangle” event.
