‘LOVE’ and Chalk Coming to Lake Anne Plaza Next Month

More than 96 square feet of love will be on display at Lake Anne Plaza for six days in June.

The Virginia Tourism Corporation will bring its “LOVE” display, 16 feet long and over six feet high, to the plaza June 9-14. The artwork is part of the Virginia Is For Lovers campaign, designed to promote vacation experiences throughout the state.

Visitors to any LOVE display throughout the state are encouraged to take their picture with it and share it on social media using the hashtag #LoveVA.

While the display is up at the plaza, handmade artwork will be going down as well. The fourth annual Chalk on the Water festival will take place Saturday and Sunday, June 10 and 11.

Artists can participate in four categories: family/elementary, family/junior and senior high school, amateur artists, and professional artists. Cash prizes are available in each category.

Registration is $10 for families and students, and $15 for amateur and professional artists. Only 100 total spots are available.

The festival is sponsored by Friends of Lake Anne, Reston Art Gallery, and Lake Anne Coffee House and Wine Bar.
