Rosslyn Public Art Walking Tour @ Central Place Plaza
Jun 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

In partnership with WalkArlington and Arlington Arts, the Rosslyn BID is hosting a Rosslyn Public Art Walking Tour with one of Arlington County’s Public Artists in Residence, Graham Coreil-Allen. The tour is free and open to the public, and starts and ends at Central Place Plaza: 1800 N. Lynn Street, in Arlington, Virginia.

Directly following the tour, join us for a social at the Rosslyn Rocks! concert at Central Place Plaza. We will enjoy live music and share thoughts about the walking tour! Space is limited, and registration is required.

Did you know that Rosslyn has many celebrated works of public art throughout the neighborhood? Public art helps to give a community a sense of place, yet often even longtime locals may not know the story behind the artworks. During this 90-minute tour, participants will discover the history, design and purpose of Rosslyn’s works of public art. Taking advantage of Rosslyn’s pedestrian-friendly character, the tour will also explore a robust network of spectacular and hidden public spaces. Throughout the tour, Coreil-Allen will create opportunities for playful interaction and inclusive discussion. Highlights include Cupid’s Garden, Dark Star Park, Liquid Pixels, the Le Meridien overlook, Anna and David, and Bennett Park Art Atrium.

REGISTER HERE (REGISTRATION OPENS MAY 22)
