Untitled (Courthouse Plaza Etched Glass)
Rather than purchase an off-the-shelf film to cover the glass partition walls of Courthouse Plaza’s public conference rooms, Arlington’s Public Art Program worked with a local artist to create a composition that decreases distractions for users of these rooms and brings a unique sense of place to Arlington’s government center. Using a fine-tipped pen on Mylar, Linn Meyers created five small drawings, one for each public conference room at Courthouse Plaza. Meyers’ drawings were then scanned, enlarged, and etched into glass. Before sandblasting could occur, Meyers worked with the glass fabricator to refine the digital images and ensure that the quality of her original mark remained in the final etched glass.
The artwork can be found on the glass partition walls of the lobby and third floor public conference rooms. The building is publicly accessible during business hours.
