BY REBECCA BENNETT — Shortly after a tow truck was stolen and crashed into the future home of Art Works and Pizzeria Paradiso on Sept. 19, an Art Works representative told Hyattsville Life & Times’ Andrew Marder that police said the structure needed to be taken down because it was a safety hazard.

“As many of you have seen, our new design included that greenhouse,” Art Works Executive Director Barbara Johnson said in an email to supporters.  “It was the greenhouse that inspired many of our ideas about future programming. It was the greenhouse that helped shape current curriculum and partnerships.”

“We are relieved beyond words that no innocent bystanders were injured in this terrible event, and still, the Art Works family and many in the community are feeling a terrible loss,” Johnson said.

Anyone wishing to donate to Art Works can do so here.
