Many thanks to all who came out to the mural opening reception on the 24th. Seeing so many friends, neighbors, Arlington Arts affiliates, Engleside residents, and new faces celebrating together was a perfect conclusion to the project. County Board Member Libby Garvey, Engleside resident and Arlington Commission for the Arts member Courtney Murphy, Engleside board president John Laswick, and I spoke briefly about our roles in creating the mural and in the arts in Arlington. Everyone then joined me in revealing the finished mural, pulling down one hundred feet of black plastic sheeting that was covering the mural. Check out photos of the event and the finished mural here and stay tuned for a longer post wrapping up my final thoughts on the mural.
