Marco Rando and Lake Anne Elementary School Students

2008 – 2018  |  Mural


This mural on the underpass across from Lake Anne Elementary school was the idea of Kimberly Dillard, a parent who wanted to see something other than graffiti in the tunnel.  With a grant from the Washington Post and help from local artist Marco Rando and GRACE, Lake Anne students created a colorful passage reflecting the diversity of the school. The tunnel is adorned with students’ illustrations, hand prints and fish colored with various country flags representing the variety of ethnicities at Lake Anne.
