Reston Station Gets Panda-fied

The plaza at Reston Station — soon to be home to Urban Pop artisan shops — has some new residents.

Two of the sculptures from D.C.’s Panda Mania public art contest of 2004 have been installed on the plaza.

“PandaMania” was a collection of more than 150 pandas (some in standing poses and some sitting) that had been decorated, painted or customized in various whimsical ways by artists.

 

New to Reston: “Pandela Anderson,” by artist Maggie O’Neill and “China Doll” by Amy Goodstine and Brandon Bloch.

Pandela Anderson, a take on Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson, can be found by the escalators to take people down to the kiss-and-ride area. China Doll is located around the corner and to the right, across from the new BLVD apartments.

Comstock spokeswoman Maggie Parker said the Pandas are on loan from a private collector.
