A temporary mural project located at 69 S. Market Street in Downtown Frederick recently moved into the second phase and expanded to windows on the side of the building. The artist, Vanessa Smith, aimed to capture the diversity of Frederick by using blank faces so people can see themselves as someone in the mural. The mural represents a variety of community members including firefighters, artists, the deaf community, service members, and more! 

The Ausherman Family Foundation is committed to uplifting the arts in Frederick County through catalyzing public art projects. The goal of the project was to create a mural that welcomes visitors and tourists to Downtown Frederick and provide opportunities for local artists.  It is one of the first buildings that visitors see as they travel down Market Street. They are honored to support a thriving arts community and look forward to many similar projects in the future.
