Event Details:

Downtown Silver Spring and the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County will introduce internationally renowned artist, Julia Vogl, and the concept for “Re-Imagining the Holidays” on The Fountain Plaza at Downtown Silver Spring on Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 12:00 p.m. The announcement will be made during Lunchtime Lounge with entertainment provided by R&B/Funk band Ro Cube & Friends. 

Vogl named the installation, “Holiday Destination,” and asks members of the community to donate recycled plastic bottles, placing them in receptacles that describe each person’s holiday destination. Bottles will be painted in specific colors based on the destination. For those traveling somewhere hot, red; somewhere cold, blue; somewhere exotic or foreign, green; staying home, yellow; and for those traveling to wherever winter takes them, silver. “Holiday Destination” will be unveiled.
