The Meeting Bowls are social places for gathering, getting to know people, and fostering dialogue in small groups. Each of these pieces of playful urban furniture is designed to accommodate eight people and encourage interaction by having those seated inside face one another. We invite you to hang with friends, have lunch, conduct a meeting or simply relax here. This space is for you, so enjoy!
After their stay in Arlington, the three Meeting Bowls will be moved to Miami, Florida, where they will appear in the Design District of Art Basel Miami, the premier art show in the Americas where art collectors and fans from all over the world annually convene for one week. Arlington Arts’ presentation of the Meeting Bowls in Arlington and Miami Beach is made possible through a grant from Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), an agency that orchestrates public support for the promotion of culture, both in Spain and overseas. Co-sponsored by the Spanish Cultural Center (CCE Miami).
The project is part of Courthouse 2.0: Reimagining the Civic, a public art initiative aimed at sparking public conversation about the future Courthouse Square by exploring the interaction between civic space and civic life in Arlington in the twenty-first century.
