What’s new and what’s next…

We’re going to let you in on a little secret: things don’t slow down at Arlington Arts Center in August. Classes are humming along, artists are busy in their studios, and as for our exhibitions, we’re doing lots of scheming, meeting with artists, and planning the next two years of shows for your viewing pleasure.

Here’s a glimpse of what’s new and what’s next:

Opening July 11, 2015, this show looks at games and play through the lens of contemporary art. We will examine play from a variety of vantage points, including: play as a vital tool for experimentation and innovation in art-making; play a fruitful source of subject matter and content; and play as a strategy to interact with and engage audiences in contemporary art. We are currently accepting proposals from artists who wish to participate in this exhibition. Deadline is Sept. 26. Apply online today!Play
