The WAP Path of Pyramids is back by popular demand. When the COVID pandemic prevented the 4th annual Wheaton Arts Parade & Festival in 2020, WAP brought art to the streets and sidewalks of Wheaton where it could be appreciated safely. Why pyramids? Wheaton is formed by the intersection of three state highways, creating what is known as the Wheaton Triangle. The annual parade is called “Parade the Triangle” and a triangle has been featured on many of the annual parade's posters.
Thanks to support from the Maryland State Arts Council and the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County, 5 new 8ft tetrahedrons were commissioned. They join 2 from 2020 to create an art walk, a "Path of Pyramids," around the Wheaton Urban District.
The sign on each pyramid has a QR code that will link your mobile device to a recording by the artist telling you a little bit about their background and their pyramid design. You also can can click on the yellow triangles on the map below to hear the artists and see images of the three faces of their pyramids.
