Exhibit to Complement Reston Home Tour

The Reston Historic Trust & Museum has installed a new temporary exhibit in their gift shop, “A Modern Design,” to correspond with the annual Reston Home Tour on Oct. 13, 2018. The exhibit explores how values of Restonians in the 1960s shaped how the interiors of their homes look. The exhibit is also meant to spark conversation. How do 1960s Reston home interiors compare to today’s homes? Visitors can decide for themselves by seeing the exhibit and going on this year’s Reston Home Tour. The exhibit will be on display through the end of October. Those interested in the Reston Home Tour can find more information and purchase tickets online at https://restonmuseum.org/hometour.
