Worcester Goes Purple – River of Hope Project


WGP River of Hope Flyer

Worcester Goes Purple (WGP) has secured grant funding from the Worcester County Arts Council to install an art rock river, using hundreds of rocks that community members will paint purple at several upcoming events across the county. The community is invited to paint these rocks in honor of those who have died from an overdose or are struggling with addiction.

The painting project will take place at the following public events. Attendees can look for the purple WGP table display.

• Blessing of the Combines in Snow Hill, MD, on August 3, 2019

• Fourth Friday Street Festival in Pocomoke, MD, on August 23, 2019

• Small Town Throw-Down in Berlin, MD, on September 7, 2019

• SunFest in Ocean City, MD, on September 21, 2019

When complete, the painted rocks will become a beautiful “River of Hope” awareness art installation at the Atlantic Club in Ocean City. The Atlantic Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals in recovery and those trying to achieve sobriety.
