New ‘Salute to Reston’ murals take shape at The Harrison in Reston Town Center

Frequenters of Reston Town Center may notice new artwork in the area.

Local artist Bryan King began work yesterday (Monday) on two new murals at The Harrison at Reston Town Center. Titled “Salute to Reston,” the murals depict Reston’s skyline and the Mercury Fountain in RTC.

Shaneik Isaac, the apartment’s social director of events, says the artwork is intended to brighten up the more “drab” areas of the building.

“We wanted to remind The Harrison community that Reston is an amazing and beautiful place to live,” Isaac said.

The 360-unit building already has one mural on its loading dock door featuring a picture of leaves and the apartment’s logo.

King is the owner of Artifice Inc., a decorative painting company. Here’s more from King’s website on his background: 

King has been working as a decorative artisan in the Washington Metropolitan region since 1986. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Carnegie-Mellon University and received his M.F.A. in painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.  He is a past recipient of the Washington Building Congress Award for Craftsmanship and an instructor of mural painting for the Smithsonian Resident Associate Program. Bryan has executed many large scale building murals that dot the landscape of the region. He has also executed for the past 30 years numerous murals for private residences, corporate interiors, schools, and restaurants, and sophisticated finishes for many prestigious interiors including the House and Senate Theaters at the Main Exhibition Hall at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center. 

The project was completed yesterday.

Located at 1800 Jonathan Way, The Harrison opened in 2015 and includes roughly 28,000 square feet of amenity space. It was developed by Renaissance Centro, the developer behind Stratford House and Carlton House, two other multifamily communities across Reston Parkway.
