Milton Glaser Rebuilds the Enchanted Forest, 48 x 48 inches, Acrylic on Panel, 2015
The Enchanted Forest was a nursery rhyme theme park on Rt 40 near Ellicot City. It closed in the late 1980s and was sold for development. A shopping center took over much of the space. Some of the attractions were salvaged and moved to a nearby farm. The remainder of the park sat decaying until 2015 when it was finally bulldozed. The dark area at the top of my painting reminded me of Milton Glazer's Bob Dylan poster.
