Cross country courses are literally works of art! I think that in a way the course design itself and its use of terrain is art, but of course there’s also the fabulous woodcarvings produced by course builders as well as the incredible paint jobs that put the finishing touches on the fences. The imposing crab jump into the water got most of the attention at the Maryland 5 star this year, but I was personally blown away by the beautiful orioles at the end of the course. They were painted by Abigail Dudley, a local artist and recent graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, who volunteered her time and skills to help beautify the new course. You can check out more of her work here.
