COPALeesburg, VA (December 3, 2019) – The Commission on Public Art (COPA) will celebrate its 10th anniversary of supporting the arts in Leesburg with a ceremony immediately  following the Holiday Tree Lighting on Friday, December 6, 2019. Mayor Kelly Burk will speak at the ceremony.

The ceremony will include the launch of a new exhibit of watercolor paintings by artist Elaine Nunnally. “Journeys by Foot and by Car” will depict painted views of driving along Leesburg highways and will include paintings from a recent journey to the Camino de Santiago, in Spain. The exhibition will be on display at Town Hall through February 2020.  

The event will take place in the Town Hall lobby (25 West Market Street) and will feature hot apple cider, holiday cookies, and an interactive opportunity to share ideas for public arts in Leesburg. 

The Leesburg Commission on Public Art supports the development of the Town’s public art program, serves as an advisory body for public art, advises the Town Council on policies that will strengthen the arts, administers activities concerning public art that are not a part of regularly scheduled Town programs, and seeks support on behalf of the arts in Leesburg.
