“Artist Rainbow”

This is second professional mural St. Mary’s Community Development Corp. has installed in Lexington Park, MD with the help of the St. Mary’s County Arts Council


Artist Rainbow combines the faces of famous artists, speakers, poets, orators, a hip hop musician, a street artist, a Piscataway performing artist, and that very famous smiling portrait

Ms. Racanello, St. Mary’s CDC’s staff artist, was inspired to design the collage after overseeing the installation of the corporation’s first mural Lexington Park Alive!

I designed the collage to show that art and artists know no cultural barriers
— Roz Racanello

A competition was held to select four additional Maryland artists to work with Ms. Racanello on “Artist Rainbow” and the artists that were picked was Kailee Findlay, Caitlin Jones, Elizabeth Lopez, and Katia Meisinger.
