I would like to note an important omission in the front page article "Bringing the Courts Back" in The Star Democrat for August 20.
This is that the artistic surfacing of the basketball courts in Idlewild and Moton Parks was supported from the outset by a $5,000 Public Arts Across Maryland (PAAM) grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.
The grant was arranged by the Talbot County Arts Council in cooperation with the Town of Easton and the Play in Color Fund of the Mid-Shore Community Foundation.
This is important because it reflects the significance of this community project at the state level.
The Maryland State Arts Council recognized Play in Color as one of the best public art proposals from across the state and a critical investment in their mission to create enriching and accessible art experiences for the citizens of Maryland.
