Mutual Understanding/Mutual Respect—that’s the title of the sculpture installed outside the North County Governmental Center.

Attend a talk by this artwork’s creator, M.L. Duffy, on Wednesday, Nov. 30, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. to learn more about what inspired this sculpture. This free event will be held at the new North County Government Center, 1801 Cameron Glen Drive, Reston.

This talk is sponsored by the Initiative for Public Art in collaboration with Hunter Mill District Supervisor Cathy Hudgins.

Mutual Respect/Mutal features two hands that reach out for each other in a welcoming gesture of peaceful greeting, respect and shared objective. This sculpture is a graceful reminder that county officials and staff work together with the community in mutual understanding and mutual respect. The installed piece was dedicated on June 18, 2016.

Installed. Little landscaping, little light placement, might start looking decent soon. #reston #virginia #publicsculpture

Fairfax County is encouraging more public art outside its own buildings, as well as private ones. In fact, this is a key component of the county’s strategic Economic Success Plan that calls for the inclusion of public art in development, creation of arts districts and creating a performing or other arts facility in Tysons.

Public art helps to create lively, unique and energized communities, attracting people and businesses to the county.
