Arts Walk Cover Artist Spotlight: Darcy Goedecke

The Spring Arts Walk map features “Mother Earth”, an oil painting by Darcy Goedecke. The original piece will be on display at Childhood’s End Gallery (#73) during Spring Arts Walk; and will be highlighted at The Washington Center for the Performing Arts (#10) gallery show Community Canvas: Celebrating 30 years of Public Art. Additional works from the artist will be on display at The Mouse Trap (#6).

To learn more about Darcy’s work, watch the Cover Artist Spotlight video on the City’s Facebook page. In it, she discusses her process, what inspires her, and giant chickens!
