The announcement by the Hyattsville Community Development Corporation (CDC) and ECHO Reality came on June 1, after the jurying process was complete.

According to a press release from the CDC, “The 3’x15’ sculpture will greet visitors entering the complex and act as a beacon for pedestrians at the plaza. … Thematically, “Ribbon of Life” addresses the Gateway project’s theme of healthy living by visually inspiring ‘the essence of [the building blocks of life].’”
