Washington Post reviews Gateway Arts

Today's Washington Post Metro section had a full article about the Gateway Arts District, which includes Mount Rainier, MD where the Washington Glass School is located. For the past 10 years, the Prince George's County area has worked at revitalizing the area and changing it from empty lots and abandoned warehouse storage into a funky arts community. The article's tone was disappointingly snarky, but there were some positive elements - such as quotes from area superstar artists Margaret Boozer, Tim Tate and comments and a photo of Novie Trump.

The Post also had a photograph that was captioned with incorrect info - the imagery on the glass panel is not a photograph, but a drawing made from frit powder.
