"Then as Now"

Additional Description: The monument to the Silver Spring Armory site was created by an artist whose heritage includes both African American and Native-American (Cherokee) ancestry. Jerome Meadow's diverse background lead him to express a community's spirit through his collage and abstract work. As a former resident of DC and graduate student at the University of Maryland, Meadows is familiar with Silver Spring's cultural mix. Meadows says "Art, the way I interpret it, lies within the realm (of the spirit) and when used effectively can have a healing impact, a revealing impact, an empowering impact." - Silver Spring Downtown Arts and Entertainment
