Public Art Reston commits to doing its work with an equity lens by nurturing diverse participation, celebrating different voices reflecting our community, and providing opportunities to experience public art in all of Reston’s neighborhoods. We will connect at the intersections of creativity, accessibility, and belonging. 

*This equity statement will be updated as Public Art Reston continues to improve and evolve this focus.
