Midtown Community Mural
Dana Ann Scheurer
2013 | Keim paint on concrete
The Midtown Community Mural on New Dominion Parkway was commissioned from local Reston artist Dana Scheuer to enliven the public wall of a condominium property Reston Town Center and was commissioned by the homeowners to enliven a nondescript space leading up from the sidewalk. Scheuer drew on her characteristic geometric interplay of forms that she captures in bright, saturated colors. The faceted scene includes many recognizable landmarks of art and architecture from the around Reston Town Center and situates the work within its site. The centerpiece of the scene features a life-sized image of Reston’s founder, Robert E. Simon, Jr., operating an old-style camera, and presents an interactive photo opportunity for neighbors, passers-by and tourists. The Mural was painted with a specific weather resistant and durable paint by Bryan King of Artifice, Inc.
