Morning Notes

Uplifting Signs on Local Homes — “If you drive through the Lyon Park neighborhood, you’ll notice something similar about the homes. They all have words of positivity hanging from their homes. ‘It makes us unique right?’ one neighbor said. Rachel Burns is behind the signs… spreading cheer throughout her neighborhood since 2016. She created signs of positivity that took off after she first hung one on the front of her home and now neighbors are taking part.” [WJLA]

GOP Seeking More Local Candidates — “Arlington Republicans are unlikely to be able to field candidates for all the offices on the county ballot next November, but retain hopes they may be able to recruit contenders for about half… Contests for County Board, School Board, constitutional offices and General Assembly posts will be on the 2023 ballot. Among the incumbents – Democrats all – Hurtt predicted ‘about five-ish’ will not be seeking re-election. ‘You could be the new sheriff in town,’ he told the rank-and-file.” [Sun Gazette]

High School Basketball Season Starts — “The high-school basketball season began in full last week for Arlington varsity teams, highlighted by convincing opening victories by the Washington-Liberty Generals and Bishop O’Connell Knights boys squads, the winningest county teams last season, and a 2-0 record by the O’Connell girls.” [Sun Gazette]

It’s Wednesday — Possible drizzle in the morning. High of 59 and low of 50. Sunrise at 7:15 am and sunset at 4:48 pm. [Weather.gov]

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.
