New Public Sites in On The Road at the Arlington Arts Center

On Saturday, March 5, at 2:00 pm, and again at 3:00 pm for children, Graham Coreil-Allen will be leading a walking tour through some of the least loved parts of Arlington: strange humming electronic boxes hidden from view by cinder blocks … cracked paved voids where functional structures presumably once stood …signs that no longer convey information …curiously landscaped interstitial spaces that leave the eye confused and the body stranded.

These sorts of neglected, haphazard looking surplus sites are common in any suburban or urban zone: places that developers and planners forgot, or simply hoped would not be noticed. Graham treats these places as opportunities for action. He wants his audience to reclaim and repurpose the places he calls New Public Sites.

–Jeffry Cudlin, AAC Director of Exhibitions
