Tysons Tiles' is a public art installation consisting of two visually compelling ground murals by artist Julia Vogl. Data was collected from over 1,000 individuals and visually translated into a vibrant design to create awareness about the arts, enhance our sense of place in the Tysons Corner neighborhood, and provide a vision for future enhancements in the Tysons area. It is also a place for fun- come invent games with the tiles and play!
Commissioned by Fairfax Arts Council.
Imagine Art Here: Tysons Tiles has been made possible through a lead Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) with matching funds from corporate sponsors, The ASCENT, Capital One, Intelsat, The JBG Companies and JBGR Retail, The Meridian Group, and Washington Real Estate Investment Trust. In-kind support has been provided by AlumiGraphics, Beacon Capital Partners, INADEV, and Severn Graphics.

Jenna Von Elling was commissioned to document the project from the first public interactions in May until it's official unveiling on June 25th. "Watching Julia's dedication and focus on this large and complex art work inspired me to push myself as well. Enjoy!"
