Join one of Arlington County’s Public Artists in Residence, Graham Coreil-Allen, for one of two free Rosslyn Public Art Walking Tours to learn about Rosslyn’s celebrated public art collection on Saturday, May 11, and Thursday, June 6. The tours are free and open to the public, and all start and end at Central Place Plaza: 1800 N. Lynn Street, in Arlington, Virginia. Space is limited, and registration is required.
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 these 90-minute tours, participants will discover the history, design and purpose of Rosslyn’s works of public art. Taking advantage of Rosslyn’s pedestrian-friendly character, the tours will also explore a robust network of spectacular and hidden public spaces. Throughout the tours, 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.
