On Saturday, Feb. 4 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., the Potomac Place Condominium Mural Committee will host a community forum in the Potomac Place Community Room on the restoration of the Leo Lionni Mosaic Mural, which sits behind 800 4th St. SW.
In 1959, landscape architect Dan Kiley commissioned a mosaic mural reflecting the renewal of Southwest DC. The artist was Leo Lionni. Lionni eventually became a well-known children’s book author and illustrator. In 2003, that significant work of art was nearly destroyed. The Southwest community rallied to save and relocate the mosaic mural. Since its relocation, the mural has fallen into disrepair. Please join us for a Community Forum where we will tour the mosaic mural, hear from the conservator, learn about the artist’s contributions, and enjoy a continental breakfast.
Guests are asked to RSVP at LionniMural.eventbrite.com.
