Performing artists are reaching out to mural artists in an exchange of talents to help a Severna Park nonprofit enhance a section of the B&A Trail. ASPIRE, or the Association for Severna Park Improvement Renewal and Enhancement, is raising money for its Centennial Murals project, commissioned artworks depicting the community's history that will be painted along the commercial section of the trail. The only completed murals are behind the Carr Building at Riggs Avenue and B&A Boulevard, where artist Cindy Fletcher-Holden has created a stunning rendition of the railroad that once ran through Severna Park, and around the corner is her tranquil beach scene.

WASHINGTON - -Southern belle. Fairy-tale princess. Nun. Pioneer aviatrix. Is there any role Amy Adams can't play? Maybe. It's hard imagining her as a victim in the next Friday 13th sequel, or as a lethal cyborg in the Terminator franchise. But just about everything else seems possible, especially after her star turn as a saucy Amelia Earhart in the summer-blockbuster in waiting, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. "I don't know that there's a better actress in her generation," says Smithsonian director Shawn Levy, who was in Washington on Thursday evening for the movie's world premiere at the Smithsonian's National Air & Space Museum.
