Arts Focus: Share your feedback on design concepts for temporary outdoor arts space

This column is sponsored by Arlington Arts/Arlington Cultural Affairs, a division of Arlington Economic Development.

The 2700 South Nelson Project is planned to replace the two buildings acquired by Arlington County at 2700 South Nelson Street and 2701 South Oakland Street with a temporary flexible outdoor arts and maker space.

Based on the needs and ideas shared by community stakeholders, the artists and designers at Graham Projects have created two design concepts.

View the designs and share your feedback to shape the future temporary creative open space at 2700 S Nelson! The feedback form will be open through November 21.

As a part of the Public Engagement process of the project, the Graham Projects design team and Arlington County officials engaged nearly 400 participants through several outreach strategies; including targeted meetings with key stakeholder groups, a public virtual Kick Off Presentation, two in-person Pop-Ups reaching residents at popular gathering spots, and an online Engagement Web Page where folks could respond to different examples of public art and placemaking; and share their ideas for colors, thematic inspiration, local history, and on-site programming.

Want to read more about the public feedback that informed the potential design concepts? Download the 2700 S Nelson St Placemaking Plan: Community Engagement Data Analysis.

View renderings and videos about each of the proposed designs at this link, then share your feedback through November 21.
