On behalf of the entire Board of Directors of the Council for the Arts of Herndon, I'd like to thank the Herndon High School Art Club and Wayne Zink for creating the concept and painting all of those tiles! And thank Cindy Roeder of Herndon Parks & Recs for suggesting this site and them and also thank John Johnson, who installed all the tiles at night after many long days at his day job (DPW) during the Herndon Festival. CAH is proud to be the Town's staunch supporter of the arts and as President, I can assure you our commitment to the arts will remain strong! We are delighted to have presented three murals to the Herndon community and are hard at work planning a fourth mural to be painted in our historic downtown.

On behalf of the Parks and Recreation Department and our patrons who will enjoy this mural for years to come, we greatly appreciate the support of the Council for the Arts, the inspiration of Samantha Logan, the talent and energy of the HHS honors art students and the hard work and leadership in the classroom of Wayne Zink. Thanks all!
