The National Science Foundation joined with the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership and the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce to host an opening reception Nov. 8 at the new NSF Headquarters building on Eisenhower Avenue.
“We are excited to welcome the National Science Foundation to Alexandria,” said AEDP President and CEO Stephanie Landrum. “This project is a catalyst and kickstarter for future development projects in the city.”
The reception featured displays of scientific innovations throughout history, many of which are depicted in the History Mural, a 52-foot wide, 11-foot tall mural that is the focal point of the building’s lobby.
“This was a thrilling project to be a part of,” said Nicoll Fuller, the mural’s artist.
