What’s that Orange Artwork on Wilson Blvd?
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.
Global Spotlight: Ukraine, opening February 18, presents video works by four Ukrainian artists responding to the war and its historical roots. In March, in the Jenkins Community Gallery, Arlington Spotlight: Local Area High Schools opens, featuring new artwork every two weeks by seniors from HB Woodlawn, Yorktown, Wakefield, and Washington-Liberty.
Visit Saturday, February 25 for the museum’s reception from 5pm-8pm! Explore the website to register for new programs, such as yoga in the galleries, art classes for kids and adults, and summer camp registration, which opens mid- February.
