A new art exhibit opened at Dulles International Airport features
“Signatures of Loudoun,” photographs of some of the county’s best architectural
and landscape designs.
The Loudoun County Department of Economic Development, the Loudoun Design Cabinet and the Washington Metropolitan Airports Authority collaborated on the exhibit.
More than a dozen photographic panels provide a glimpse at highly regarded designs, including the RagingWire data center campus in Ashburn, the Morven Park Mansion in Leesburg and the Sunset Hills Vineyard in Purcellville. The panels display recent winners in the Signatures of Loudoun Design Excellence Awards program, which recognizes the links between Loudoun’s successful community and its high-quality architectural design efforts.
“At Dulles International Airport we recognize the positive affect art can have on the traveling public. Art is a wonderful mechanism that leads to an even more enjoyable experience for passengers at our airport,” Airport Manager Christopher Browne said in a prepared statement. “These photographic panels provide a great addition to our robust arts program, and are an essential part in creating a welcoming environment for travelers.”
Loudoun Board of Supervisors Chairman Scott K. York (R) called the airport “Washington’s gateway to the nation.”
The Loudoun Design Cabinet – a volunteer group of professional architects, landscape architects, engineers and planners sponsored by Loudoun’s DED – runs the Signatures of Loudoun program.
“We are honored to have these winners on display here for a global audience,” Alan Hansen, chairman of the Design Cabinet.
The exhibit is on the Arrivals level of the airport near Baggage Claim 10. For more information about Loudoun Economic Development call 1-800-LOUDOUN or go to biz.loudoun.gov.
