Reston: The Jigsaw Puzzle

With the holidays fast approaching, we've been pondering how it's a shame that Reston: The Board Game and Reston: The Coloring Book are no longer available as stocking stuffers for that special HOA tenant in your life. There isn't even an all-star cast recording that would help us relive the magic of Reston: The Opera! Fortunately, the Initiative for Public Art - Reston has come to the rescue, with a fancy Reston-themed jigsaw puzzle!


The IPAR fundraising jigsaw features this detail from the Glade Drive underpass mosaic "Emerge," created by Valerie Theberge and students at Hunters Woods Elementary. At 500 pieces, all of which presumably have lots of jagged mosaic borders, it looks like it'll keep us busy through the new year and then some.

It's a great idea, both as a fundraiser and as a way to raise awareness for public art. In honor of the imminent arrival of Metro, though, we'd humbly suggest that this be the visual for next year's puzzle.
