Unveiling of a Public Art project between local business Craft Table and artist Francesca Crevoiserat from Indio, California is a student in the Art and Design program for a BFA (Studio Art) with a dual focus in Painting and Cermaics at Frostburg State University, Frostburg, MD.  Francesca has exhibited artwork in the 2023 & 2022 Frostburg Student Art Exhibition, the 2022 Queer Appalachia Exhibition, and the 2019 Palm Desert High School Arts Exhibit. She has created this image of youth and curiosity with the goal of bringing life into Cumberland. She developed a vibrant visual that showcases a glimpse into the imagination of a child, ”The possibility and excitement of another world that could be hiding anywhere, just waiting to be found. Imagination is key within the realities of life, and it is important to never lose that sense of individuality and expression”…

Craft Table owner Chris Myers and Carol Davis invited local artist, artist organizations and art educators to partner with for the creation of Trompe L’oeil windows in downtown Cumberland. Artists willing to accept input and be sensitive to the historical nature of the community to transform our building into a whimsical Trompe L’oeil for the public to enjoy. Artist submitted a brief resume, RFP to include a cost proposal and a work sample. A local community panel selected the individual winners.

Art work can be viewed along Merchants Alley and South Liberty Street.
