Mama, look we on TV! #BurstingOnTheScene #Hyattsville
The event, called “Bursting on the Scene”, had over 35 people help paint two murals onto the walls of an underpass leading into the station.
The designs were created by local artist Henry Portillo. He said he grew up not too far from the station and the designs were based off of the sunsets of his childhood when his mom would tel him to come inside.
“And besides that, it’s just mainly to give sort of like a vibrance. I wanted to show movement in a still image so everything that’s in it, it’s pointed with arrows, it’s a big arrow at the end that’s going to symbolize a person. Sort of like walking through their day, filled with geometric shapes around you,” added Portillo.
Organizers said these murals were the first decorative improvements to the station since it opened in 1993.

She [Sue] has been active in the Arts District, engaging in helping peoples homes and providing a stable business resource for the community and driving a real stable example of delivering artisan works to residents and to area stakeholders in a way that because she works in retail is a very welcome creative force for the city, Fair said.
She is choosing to locate on that corridor in a space that is heavily trafficked across from Franklins to the post office to Pyramid Atlantic. Shes recognizing the opportunity for an eye-catching appeal. Its a very notable corner and I think that you cant just have anyone there, Fair said. It requires something innovative and I think that its great that she is doing this for the holiday season.
