The Story of “Light Dodger”

Here is a video about the creation of the Light Dodger sculpture narrated by the artist, Tj Aitken. The sculpture is slated to be installed in 2015 at Bainbridge Shady Grove Metro Apartments at the entrance to the Shady Grove Metro Station. The site also will also include Tj’s “Hemi Piston Street Lamps”. It will be seen by thousands of commuters taking the Red Line from the Shady Grove Metro Station to Bethesda, Maryland and D.C. Center.

It is a part of a project that will commemorate the history of Reed Brothers Dodge.

About Reed Brothers

I am a co-owner of the former Reed Brothers Dodge in Rockville, Maryland. Lewis Reed, the founder of Reed Brothers Dodge was my grandfather. We were a family-owned and operated car dealership in Rockville for almost a century. I served in the United States Air Force for 30 years before retiring in the top enlisted grade of Chief Master Sergeant in July 2006. In 2016, I received the Arthur M. Wagman Award for Historic Preservation Communication from Peerless Rockville for documenting the history of Reed Brothers Dodge in both blog and book format. This distinguished honor recognizes outstanding achievement by writers, educators, and historians whose work has heightened public awareness of Rockville’s architectural and cultural heritage, growth and development.
