Y. David Chung, Art and Visual Technologies, was commissioned by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority to paint a mural for the Rosslyn Metro Station. The 88-feet-long and four-feet-wide mural, painted on concrete panel, will be unveiled Wednesday at a special dedication ceremony.

“The Rosslyn station is a major stop for tourists who are making their first visit to Virginia,” Chung says. His work, which depicts scenes from life in Arlington, including Arlington landmarks such as the Key Bridge, provides a preview of what Metro riders will see as they come out of the underground station. The mural is part of the Liveable Communities Project sponsored by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority.

This is the second time Chung has been commissioned for artwork in a metro station. In 1990, he installed artwork at the Huntington Station Platform.
