Adam Henry: Make Your Mark

On View: January 12 - June 11, 2023

Front Lawn

Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington is proud to present Make Your Mark, a large-scale abstract sculpture designed and built by Arlington-based artist Adam Henry for the Museum’s lawn. Bright and eye-catching, the work celebrates the Museum’s recent rebranding and brings energy and life to the lawn space in front of MoCA Arlington’s building.

The angular design of the artwork compliments the angles of the historic building’s gabled roof while the bright orange color of the work contrasts with the building’s traditional façade. Evoking crystals emerging from the ground, the work’s bright color stands out amongst the greens, browns, and greys of the surrounding landscape, drawing attention to the Museum and its dedication to connecting the community with contemporary art and artists.

Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Adam attended the Pratt Institute of Art and has continued his art practice over the last 25 years. His appreciation of all art forms has enabled him to develop a varied practice ranging from theater staging to album covers to portraits. Henry lives and works in Arlington, VA.
