Newly installed in the Annapolis Arts & Entertainment District

 

Near the Westgate Circle welcoming you into the Arts & Entertainment District of Annapolis on the east side of Spa Road, is the winning mural of the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County’s recent Mural Design Competition. The artwork by Jeff Huntington brings a new perspective to the plain white wall and vacant lot that sits diagonally across from Park Place and the traffic circle .  It’s a busy intersection and a lively neighborhood filled with art, theater, and restaurants.  Look closely and you’ll see flying geese, a lighthouse and a host of  multiple faces.

Jeff Huntington earned his BFA at the Corcoran School of Art and Design and his MFA from the  Chicago Art Institute. He lives in Annapolis and likes to create portraits that evolve and can be layered to depict multiple views.  As you walk past this mural, you’ll notice your eyes will focus on different things.  Huntington’s work has been exhibited in New York, Washington D.C. and Miami.
