For the 2nd year, The M Group was a proud sponsor of the Greater Reston Arts Center’s Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival. The Festival took place May 16th and 17th at the Reston Town Center. Over 200 artists participated in the show, and each year it attracts over 30,000 patrons. The mission of the Greater Reston Arts Center is to "enrich community life by promoting involvement and excellence in contemporary visual arts".
As a sponsor, The M Group was given the opportunity to create a temporary piece of installation art to be located at the family / kid pavilion. Taking this location into consideration, The M Group developed a sculpture made from swim noodles that was colorful, sustainable, memorable, and most importantly, fun! Over 350 swim noodles were used in the making of this piece. It was a huge hit with children of all ages. Upon the Festival’s end, the noodle sculpture came down but the noodles did not go to waste. The M Group donated them to the Aquatics Program at the Reston Association.
The M Group looks forward to the next Reston Arts Festival which is scheduled to take place May 21st - May 22nd, 2016. We hope you will join us!
