Public Art in Occoquan

 

Streetscape Installment on Mill Street

In partnership with Occoquan River Communities (ORC) and Occoquan Historical Society (OHS), the Town installed a 90-foot banner along Mill Street featuring life size historical images of Occoquan's past.  The banner was unveiled during a special event on September 17, 2015, during which former Mayor and current Treasurer of OHS Earnie Porta provided a description of each of the photos and their connection to Occoquan history.  This project is part of the ORC Public Art Committee's initiative to bring public art (performing and visual) to the Occoquan region.
