Four finalists have been announced for Arlington’s annual vehicle decal design competition.
The competition, which will determine which design graces the front windshields of some 160,000 vehicles in the county next year, is now in its 12th year. The finalists this year depict:
- The Arlington Education Center, which houses top Arlington Public School administrators
- Dark Star Park in Rosslyn
- The “Arlington” sign at the Arlington Cinema Drafthouse on Columbia Pike
- The Netherlands Carillon near the Iwo Jima memorial and Rosslyn
The public will be able to vote for their favorite design, starting Thursday, on the Arlington County Treasurer’s Office website.
The designs will go on display at the Founders Hall Gallery at George Mason University’s Arlington Campus (3351 N. Fairfax Drive) starting Tuesday, Dec. 15. An exhibit opening event is planned from 5:30-7 p.m.
