    Sorry [mention]Serdar [/mention] but the bonus point opportunities are date sensitive- no backdating allowed;-)

    Near my house is an elementary school my son attended for one year. It's an Arts & Science Magnet school and each year (prior to the pandemic) a different artist would work with students to create public art projects in the area. The school physical space is eye popping with different things to see as are local pools and underpasses. I've resisted posting photos of the artwork as my publicartfinder photo thinking I might "need" something close to home in case of inclement weather one day. But now we're coming to the end of Freezing Saddles, weather is no longer horribly inclement, and today I flat ran out of time. So here is what I call the "Values Mural", done by the last 6th grade class that was in residence in the before times.

    They're a little difficult to see because of the light angle, but they are:

    Left Side Right Side
    Compassion Courage
    Unity Friendship
    Creativity Sharing
    Kindness Perseverance

    Today I went to see murals that other people posted here. I saw "I'm Speaking", Amanda Gorman, the wave, and the flower in Georgetown.
    The map below caught my eye.

    I saw that the other day but it was on the OTHER side of the road, and I thought, "I'll look close another day." Thanks that now I can zoom in on your photo and see the detail!

    This heron is hidden behind the Booz Allen Hamilton building in Metro Park behind the Franconia Metro Station. There are a few other animal statues that I will have to go back and snap next time.

    I'm not sure if it counts as art, but the second picture is the igloos set up at Osteria Marzano on the other side of the building.

    The Barbie Pond on Q St now has a coronavirus themed installation to encourage vaccinations. Instead of St Patrick's Day, Let's Get Vaccinated Day!

    Default China Doll

    Left over from the Pandamonium craze in 2004, this one languishes at Wiehle-Reston East station. Purchased (probably at deep discount) by Comstock owner's wife, this panda accompanies the dragon one I posted earlier to give a splash of color to this corner of the plaza. I could have used it for a 'safe' panda photo today, but call it art, instead as I was able to work myself into a danger panda pose over on drevil's game.

    From the “yard art” genre, I found this one today on Stuart Mill Road in Oakton VA
