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.
Registration for the September 16th tour is now CLOSED.
