The WAP Path of Pyramids is back by popular demand. 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. When a triangle takes form in 3 dimensions it is a tetrahedron, a pyramid with a triangle on all four sides. The spirit of Wheaton is also formed by a triangle, but not one of highways. It is a triangle formed by its citizens, its commerce and its cultures.


When the COVID pandemic prevented the Wheaton Arts Parade & Festival in 2020, WAP brought art to the streets and sidewalks of Wheaton where it could be appreciated safely.

Thanks to support from the Maryland State Arts Council and the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County, 5 new tetrahedrons with 8 ft edges 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.
