Village Illuminated

Village IlluminationThis spring, Storage Village opened their gates and their building to local artists who transformed Storage Village’s storefront into a bright and beautiful celebration of community service.  Incredible talent from across the DC Metro area came together for this event, including Eric B. Ricks, painter of the renowned Ben’s Chili Bowl Mural, “The Alchemy of Ben Ali”.

In this one-day event, the building’s exterior storage doors became the artists’ canvases.  Each door was painted by a different artist, with their creative expression of “community service.”

Storage Village is proud to bring more large scale publicly visible art into Montgomery County.  The company hopes these paintings will continue to inspire creativity and volunteerism for generations.

“By supporting art within the community, individuals are encouraged to think creatively and share their ideas.”

– JoAnna Goldberg, Director of Marketing, Storage Village Self Storage

Participants came throughout the day to witness the artists’ process.  Each participant had the opportunity to share their creative vision by contributing to a collaborative community service mural.

Village Illuminated additionally met the immediate needs of the community by requesting all attendees donate three cans of food.  The Village Illuminated food drive collected over 35 pounds of food, benefitting Manna.
