Celebrate Sculpture and Community with Artist Zachary Oxman at Reston Museum

Reston Museum Around Town

The Reston Museum warmly invites the public to an engaging program featuring renowned sculptor Zachary Oxman. This special event will take place at the Reston Community Center Lake Anne on March 13, 2024, at 7:00 PM.

In April 2024, the Reston community celebrates the 20th anniversary of Zachary Oxman’s iconic sculpture of Reston’s founder, Robert E. Simon, Jr., titled “Untold Stories.” Known affectionately as “Bronze Bob” by locals, this sculpture has become a cherished symbol of Reston’s rich heritage.

Oxman, a Carnegie Mellon University alumnus with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, has made significant contributions to Reston’s landscape with his art, including the “Convergence” sculpture at the Aperture Apartments. His career and contributions to public art underscore a deep connection to community and storytelling through sculpture.

The evening will also feature Cheryl Terio-Simon, a longtime Reston resident, author of Community is what it is all about: an ode to Lake Anne,, and widow of Robert E. Simon Jr. Her insights will add a personal touch to the celebration, sharing stories of Reston’s evolution and her late husband’s legacy.

Alexandra Campbell, Executive Director of Reston Museum, expressed her enthusiasm: “We are thrilled to host Mr. Oxman for our March program. It’s a perfect start to our Founder’s Day 20th-anniversary celebrations, highlighting the installation of the ‘Bronze Bob’ sculpture. We will also feature photographs from the sculpture’s original unveiling throughout March at the museum.”
