Rosslyn Preparing Putt Putt Pop-Up for This Summer

Mini-golf lovers will soon be able to play a pop-up putt putt course in Rosslyn that features local landmarks.

The Rosslyn Business Improvement District is building the nine-hole mini goal course at 1401 Wilson Blvd in a small park space donated by Monday Properties.

The park is nestled at the corner of Wilson Blvd and N. Oaks Street, and the pop-up is expected to open on Friday, June 21 and remain open until late August or September, according to a press release.

Re-creations of Rosslyn landmarks will decorate the pop-up, including the Key Bridge, Dark Star Park, and the Potomac Tower, which was designed by the recently deceased architect I.M. Pei.

Admission will cost $3 and tickets will go on sale in June.

Next to the park, attendees will be able buy penny candy and ice cream and play arcade and carnival games at a vintage pop-up cafe the BID is also building for the summer. The cafe will also sell sangria, wine, and craft beer.

The bar and structures on the golf course were built by Capitol Drywall, which also worked another Rosslyn pop-up store last summer.

The putt-putt course was designed by CannonDesign, which also led design work on a rain garden nearby at N. Moore Street and Wilson Blvd in 2010.

The pop-up will be open on Fridays and Saturdays with an option for private bookings on Thursday, per the press release.

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
