Happy Anniversary, Greenbelt!
Greenbelt Day Weekend 2020 may look a little different this year, but this city is 82 years strong.
Celebrate with us June 5-7 with a full weekend lineup!
Get a head start on the celebration!
Instagram Photo Contest: Post a photo of you in your FAVORITE place in Greenbelt using #GreenbeltDayWeekend + #GreenbeltFavorite. Follow CityofGreenbelt on Instagram! One random entry will win a special Celebrate Greenbelt prize basket!
Living Picture Gallery: Create a "tableau vivant"! Recreate images from art history - as faithfully as possible, or with your own unique spin! Use household materials creatively to make costumes, props and sets. They can be as simple or complex as you like - no special skills or materials needed. For inspiration, see images of artwork and graphic design from the era of Greenbelt’s founding and search local museum collections.
Enjoy a video tour of the Federal Theatre Project poster exhibit at the Greenbelt Community Center with Chris Cherry, Performing Arts Coordinator. Participants are invited to choose any artwork that evokes the New Deal era or speaks to what you enjoy about life in the city.
Send your photos to email@example.com to share on social media; please include both an image of the picture that inspired you (noting the title and artist's name), and the image of your own interpretation.
