Updating the Public Art Master Plan
Please check out the PAMP Update Project Site for More Information!
The Public Art Master Plan (PAMP) is getting an update! Adopted in 2004, the PAMP outlines a strategy for how public art will improve the quality of public spaces and the built environment in Arlington for civic placemaking. The update will revisit the vision, opportunities, locations, strategies, criteria, priorities, and procedures outlined in the original plan. Check out the project site for the latest information and for a listing of upcoming community engagement opportunities.
Put the “I” into C_vic has a new home!
Put the “I” into C_vic is now on view for all to see and interact with at Columbia Pike Library (816 S Walter Reed Drive). Stop by on Friday, February 2, 6:30 – 9:00 pm to have your picture taken as the “I” in C_vic by the artist Linda Hesh and tell us what civic means to you. You can enjoy Groovin' on the Pike while you are there! The installation will be on display through the end of May 2018.
