Opening September 26, 2015 at Lake Anne Plaza
in conjunction with the Reston Multicultural Festival

What does your face stand for? How does your individuality contribute to the Reston community? In September 2015, “We Make Reston,” an “INSIDE OUT” Project, will be created by the people of Reston and coordinated by Reston Community Center and the Initiative for Public Art – Reston. “We Make Reston” will feature large-scale photographic portraits representing the diverse faces of Reston. Reston residents and employees who want to be a part of “We Make Reston” are invited to submit black and white photos to be considered for inclusion. Submissions will be accepted July 15 through August 9 and will include up to three portraits, an application form, a seven word bio, and release forms. The photos will stay up for a period of up to six weeks but may be removed earlier as the weather dictates. Due to limited space, a selection committee will select approximately 60 portraits to display adjacent to Lake Anne and at the Jo Ann Rose Gallery at the Reston Community Center for the Reston Multicultural Festival.

RCC and IPAR are now accepting submissions for this innovative project. Please visit the We Make Reston submission page between now and August 9 at 5:00 p.m. EST. to submit your photos for consideration.

“We Make Reston” is part of the “INSIDE OUT” project – a global initiative with 200,000 participants from more than 112 countries & territories. For more info and examples of other “INSIDE OUT” exhibits, visit
