Arlington's Potomac Waterfront by Anne Rowland

In the spring of 2017, Anne Rowland documented Arlington’s waterfront beginning with the County line at Chain Bridge all the way to Four Mile Run. Comprised of multiple images digitally assembled from both an iPhone and a remotely-triggered point-and-shoot camera attached to a 20-foot-tall bamboo pole, Rowland’s photographs capture the diversity of Arlington’s Potomac River waterfront from bucolic forests to urban parks. The boundary defined by the Potomac is part of Arlington’s network of public spaces and a future potential focus area for public art. View North from Chain Bridge was acquired by Arlington Public Art’s Portable Works Collection and can be viewed in the County Board Room at the Bozman Government Center, 2100 Clarendon Boulevard. 

The series was originally created for the Art on the ART Bus program that brings art out into our community by showcasing an artist’s work on one of Arlington Transit’s (ART) buses. The project is curated by Arlington Cultural Affairs, a division of Arlington Economic Development, which delivers programs as Arlington Arts.

This exhibition will be presented on a large outdoor screen in a breezeway at Mason Exhibitions Arlington and is available to view from 7:00am to 11:00pm daily.
