Art in Public Places at the abandoned Oxon Hill Library

For over 30 years, the Oxon Hill Branch Library was used by Oxon Hill and Potomac High School students as a place to study, research term papers and science fair projects, and meet with tutors.

For well over two years now our children have been deprived of this essential educational resource as a renovation project, badly mismanaged by the Prince George's County Office of General Services has dragged on and on and on, with no end in sight.

Now it appears that the abandoned building has become a canvas for aspiring artists--probably gang-related.

Does anyone care?

What does it say about education when the county closes (abandons") a library?
