Townwide arts celebrated on 'Talk of the Town'
ACMi's James Milan hosted another Talk of the Town ArtsArlington update with ACAC co-chair Stewart Ikeda and Public Art Curator Cecily Miller.
Discussions ranged from beautifying town parklets and cultural-district updates, to public-art exhibitions we'll say goodbye to this season (Persistence, Go Out Doors Neighbors, and Reflecting on Our Pandemic Experience), to such exciting new projects as Tom Starr's Remembrance of Climate Futures and Chanel Thervil's Portraits of Black Arlington.
The conversation also went behind the scenes of ACAC's work to advocate for ARPA relief to the economically hard-hit cultural sector and accessible live-work spaces for town artists.
An ArtLinks Arlington member and past Featured Artist on ArtsArlington, Karen creates collage artwork that, as she says in her artist statement is "a personal respite from some of the chaos and hectic pace of life we collectively experience." Enjoy Karen McCarthy’s work until the end of the year at Greater Goods Collective, 212A Mass. Ave.
