'Tunnel Vision' Art Project Honored


Published:

The collection of 12 paintings and photos in the Bethesda Metro station pedestrian tunnel today received an award for urban design and use of public space. "Tunnel Vision: Arts Under The Avenue," won a "Downtown Merit Award" from the Washington, D.C.-based International Downtown Association in the Public Space category. The Bethesda Urban Partnership established the exhibit under Wisconsin Avenue in May with funding from 16 local companies. The works of art were chosen from more than 200 submissions and improvements in the tunnel included cleaning and new LED lighting, which the BUP claims has reduced energy use by 80 percent.
