Public Art Reston Revamps Website to Showcase Catalogue of Public Art and More 

Public Art Reston Art & Culture

Public Art Reston has launched a dynamic and revamped website (publicartreston.org). The new website beautifully displays the diverse workings and content offerings of the non-profit, including its Public Art Tour Series, Public Art Explorer pages, and more. Also notably, the mainstage of the new website is a catalogue of 90+ temporary and permanent public artworks around Reston, complete with images, detailed information, and maps so visitors can easily find them. 

Public Art Reston’s webmaster, Alexandra Rossi of ARM Integrated Communications, was the driving force in the website’s revamp. She comments: “Public Art Reston’s new website blends a colorful and artistic design with functionality and user experience, creating an intuitive and engaging platform. Major improvements include easier navigation thanks to content reorganization, as well as bigger photos. Visitors of all ages can interact with the website’s elements, such as videos, activities, search bars, coloring pages, informative booklets, and links to other art resources like the Fairfax Public Art Locator and artists’ websites.” 

Public Art Reston’s Communications Committee was the sounding board for the process. Chair of the committee, Victoria Scarangella, says: “Public Art Reston’s new website highlights our artistic endeavors, community leadership, and dedication to Reston’s founding principles. This redesign improves user experience and navigation making public artworks and local events more accessible to our community members and partners. … Many thanks to the Public Art Reston Communications Committee and the team who made it happen—special thanks Alexandra Rossi for her web development expertise; and Rebekah Wingert of Storycatcher Productions (Storycatcherprods.com) for her videography and graphic design.” Further thanks to Cara O’Donnell and her team at Reston Association for cutting an engaging slideshow video for the homepage.
