The Community Garland started at Art On the Avenue in October 2012. The orange climbing rope was retired and donated by Sport Rock on Eisenhower Avenue. The community manipulated repurposed items to decorate the orange rope. Some combined materials with symbolic representation such as Texas, Corona and V. While others created based on aesthetics and mood. Work on the rope was continued by children at Maury Elementary School. Many hands have come together to create this garland. It is now on display outside of A Show Of Hands on Mount Vernon Avenue in Del Ray.
