Potomac, MD - Art comes in many shapes and forms and as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Steve Dean, longtime volunteer for the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park (C&O Canal), interprets the stone canal culverts as beautiful forms of art. Join us this Saturday, May 27th at 2:00 p.m. at Great Falls Tavern Visitor Center in Potomac, MD. Steve will present a talk and slideshow of his favorite artworks along the 184.5 miles of the canal.
“101 Years, 101 Culverts” is a presentation that highlights 101 of the canal’s 160 culverts in honor of the 101st year of the National Park Service. A culvert is a structure that allows water or a road to cross under the canal in certain locations. The presentation will feature photographs of a wide range of culverts and a discussion of their function, condition and beauty.
The program is free, but there is an entrance fee to the park of $10.00 per single vehicle. Space is limited to the first 25 guests. If you would like to attend this event, please RSVP with your name and how many will be in your party. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Kelsey Smith, Assistant Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The address is 11710 MacArthur Blvd., Potomac, MD 20854.
