Decorative Planters in Rosslyn Point the Way to Artisphere

Art students have been working on a project to beautify Rosslyn while pointing visitors to Artisphere (1101 Wilson Blvd).

The Rosslyn Business Improvement District teamed up with students the Art Institute of Washington to set up temporary decorative planters in the temporary CentralSpace park along Wilson Boulevard. The planters feature artistic wrappers showcasing various Rosslyn-centric images.

The beautification project also included orange “orbs” painted on the sidewalk, which form a “bread crumb trail” from the Rosslyn Metro to Artisphere.

“We are enhancing Rosslyn’s streetscape and creating a sense of place with Artisphere as Arlington’s cultural center,” said Rosslyn BID Executive Director Cecilia Cassidy, in a statement.

“The BID does a great job of beautifying our landscape and public spaces,” said Art Institute of Washington President Todd Cunningham. “I am pleased our students could play a role in that effort.”
