Arlington Arts brings the Meeting Bowls to Courthouse & Art Basel Miami, July 17 thru Nov 1

Public Art
MEETING BOWLS
temporary installation in Arlington & Art Basel Miami
thru Nov. 1
1310 N. Courthouse Rd.

As currently featured by Washingtonian Magazine, Meeting Bowls are coming to Arlington!  On a typical linear park bench, you could sit beside someone for hours without saying a word. However, the semi-spherical Meeting Bowls, which each stand 5 feet tall and 8 feet in diameter, contain a continuous seating ring inside that encourages dialogue and interaction. The Meeting Bowls gently rock as people enter and exit: a relaxing motion much like a swing. Created by the Spanish art collective mmmm..., Arlington Arts received grant support from Acción Cultural Española, AC/E to present these dynamic engaging works first in Arlington's Courthouse neighborhood (Jul. 17 - Nov. 1), and then in the Miami Design District as part of the prestigious contemporary art exhibition Art Basel in Miami Beach (Nov - Dec.). Arlington Arts encourages people to share their experiences via social media: #ArlingtonArts, #ARLPublicArt, #ReimagineCivic, #MeetingBowls.

Meeting Bowls is part of Courthouse 2.0: Reimagining the Civic, a public art initiative aimed at sparking public conversation about the future Courthouse Square by exploring the interaction between civic space and civic life in Arlington in the twenty-first century.
