A short history:
This project is inspired by the work of Hamilton Glass, a mural artist from Richmond working for community change and social justice. Last year, Dogwood students worked on a collaborative mural (design by Glass shown above) when we were in the middle of distance learning. It was a great way to build a sense of community while we were apart. But we wanted more! We wanted his bright colors on the outside of our building too. Dogwood worked with Reston Community Center and Public Arts Reston to make this happen and it is going to be EPIC! We are so thankful!
