New mural by local artist at Montgomery Mall in Bethesda

Westfield Montgomery Mall
is adding public art to its indoor space. "Carpe Diem," a mural by local artist Nicole Bourgea, was in the process of being painted last night. It features two local symbols, the cherry blossom tree and the red-tailed hawk. The short bloom cycle of the cherry blossom and the lightning-fast, snatching attack of the predator hawk reflect the title of the work. Find out more about the artist on her website, and find the mural on Level 2, next to Minte.


  1. Thats a nice mural,wasn't there a mural that was taken down near Monroe Street years ago?

  2. I enjoyed seeing this mural. It’s the best thing that’s happened at Westfield Montgomery ever. The artist will surely have much success.
