    I say "a portion" because the whole mural is the length of a football field. Read more here. The street address is 611 S. Pickett Street in Alexandria, although the mural is actually on the north side of the building, on Edsall Road.
    A theme within a theme! [mention]komorebi [/mention] appears to have a winning strategy here to amass extra points!!! (+7 points for each set of wheels that my fading eyesight was able to discern)

    Is it public art if it is seasonal? Some women who work in The building said, “Oh, they put it out every year.”

    My real submission for the day. Reston has many, many pieces of public art. This one is my favorite. It's called Convergence and it's by the same sculptor who did the work featuring Bob Simon (Founder of Reston), Untold Stories. The sculptor's name is Zachary Oxman.
