SAL DESIGNS A MURAL

PGCC Student Art League has teamed up with PGCC Clay Club, PGCC Skate Club and Dude Skateboards to design a mural image on which a mosaic for the upcoming Cosca Skate Park in Clinton, Maryland will be based. Over the next few months, Clay Club will be creating ceramic tiles from the design. After glazing, the tiles will be installed on one of the skate park’s walls. The concept for the design, an urban landscape juxtaposed against a wave, is based on the historic origins of skateboarding, which evolved from surfing.
Joshua Garner of the Gazette wrote: "Planners and architects with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission said the facility is expected to cost $500,000 and is planned to be a "larger than normal" 18,000-square-foot park with up to three skate "bowls" and a picnic area."
Shaymar Higgs, current president of PGCC Clay Club, together with the members of Dude Skateboards, campaigned for the park and challenged officials to match a $250,000 grant that his organization received. Jeff Newhouse, landscape architect for the project estimates that the park will open in spring 2011.
