2017 is the 10th Anniversary of the founding of Public Art Reston.
In 2007, a group of community leaders, professionals, and civic leaders who represent Reston’s key community organizations – sought to inspire a new commitment to public art that builds on Reston’s tradition of supporting community arts and culture. They established the organization Initiative for Public Art – Reston, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering community discourse and education about public art, creating new expectations about the possibilities for art in the public realm, and cultivating a new generation of artworks in the community.
This year, in celebration of this milestone year, we have officially changed our name from Initiative for Public Art – Reston to Public Art Reston and are undergoing a complete rebranding.
This year’s community’s events like ChalkFest at Reston Town Center and the Annual Reception will celebrate this milestone year and the impact that public art has made on the Reston community and the future of public art in Reston.
