When do you know you’re in Del Ray? New public art at Pat Miller Neighborhood Square will help

How do you know you’re in Del Ray? Visitors can wonder no longer, as a new 15-foot-tall marker will be unveiled later this month at Pat Miller Neighborhood Square.

The marker was designed by Maryland artist Kirk Seese, has been in the works since 2018. It was open to the public for last Saturday’s Art On The Avenue festival, and the tentative date for its official unveiling is October 15, according to Visit Del Ray.

“I am so excited by the recent installation of the beautiful art piece at Pat Miller Square,” Del Ray Business Association Board member Gayle Todsen Reuter told ALXnow.” This comes after years of planning and work and provides a wonderful focal point for the community.”

The project cost $10,000, which was donated by Ray Mahmood when development of Port Barrel BBQ and Holy Cow Del Ray was approved for construction on his property by City Council.

The square was named after Pat Miller, an Alexandria Living Legend. Situated in the heart of Del Ray, it hosts weekly farmers’ markets, and is home to the Del Ray Christmas Tree and Del Ray Music Festival performers.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
