New Mural Coming Soon to Mount Vernon Trail at Water Park

The BID recently launched a search to invite visual artists to submit qualifications for a new mural project in National Landing.

Nearly 30 artists responded by the March 29, 2024 deadline. Next, a selected artists will be invited to develop a mural design concept for a stipend. A final artist will be selected in early May, and the mural will be completed by the end of May 2024.

Sponsored by the National Landing Business Improvement District, this expansive mural will bring joy through art to the southern and western facing walls at the entrance to the Mount Vernon Trail, near Water Park on Crystal Drive.

Ranging in height from one foot to over 14 feet, the 245-linear-feet of canvas will be adorned with a mural from an artist who has stretched the limits of their creativity to produce a one-of-a-kind work of art.

The new mural will welcome residents, workers, and visitors to one of National Landing’s most prominent centers at an important gateway for bikers and pedestrians accessing nature and the trail system.
