Rethink Energy: Arlington Drive Electric Day September 25

This regularly scheduled sponsored column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment.

Decarbonizing transportation, meaning the removal of fossil fuels from vehicles, is key to reach Arlington’s Community Energy Plan goals.

Arlington County is actively planning for electric vehicle charging throughout the County, evaluating Arlington Public School and ART buses for phasing out to electric models, and transitioning County fleet vehicles to EVs where appropriate.

If you are thinking of purchasing an EV or just want to learn more, stop by the Sierra Club’s EV event next Saturday, September 25. Arlington Drive Electric Day is an opportunity to see electric cars and speak with owners. Learn from owner experience what it is like to own and drive an electric car.

The event is located at Kenmore Middle School in central Arlington with ample parking. Kenmore Middle School can be reached via Metro Bus routes 25B, 4B and 75. All attendees and volunteers are required to wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person.

Register to attend.

Day: Saturday, September 25
Time: 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

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.
