Brush Strokes was conceived from an interior wall detail of the historic Art Deco Silver Theatre. This piece is reminiscent of many 18th-Century French carvings, with its raised fleur-de-lis style cradling the hand-carved lettering. Rendered in Indiana Limestone, the carving serves as a monument to the revitalization of Downtown Silver Spring, MD.
