BPAC hosts public art walk

On Sunday, April 25, BPAC led small-group walks to explore some of the statues, murals, sculptures, and other public art in Old Town and Old Town North. The rain cleared out just in time for us to enjoy a lovely morning strolling around the city, and the bright flowers and spring wreaths provided impromptu splashes of color along the way.

Highlights of the walk included the Butterfly Effect mural at Bloomers, with its multilingual message encouraging individuals to make a difference; the new Love Is All You Need mural at Imagine Artwear, which celebrates KiSMET and its work developing the upper area of King Street; the stainless steel panels of City Sweep, outside Harris Teeter, with iconic images of Alexandria and DC; and Plinth, an abstract map of the historic Alexandria canal outside The Gables in Old Town North.

Thank you to the volunteers who led the walks and helped spread the word about the event.
