Featured Artist 2016 - Maaria Kader

Some people are born with raw talent.  Maaria Kader is one such individual. For nearly two decades, Maaria has nurtured her flair as a street painter to create the most awe-inspiring works of art. In fact, you’ve probably seen her work transform the blacktop outside the community center into larger-than-life characters during the City’s annual Arts Alive.
