Dalya Luttwak soars with steel at Artisphere

Rosslyn is becoming famous for the finest construction art in America. Dalya Luttwak piece in SELECT 2015, the Washington Project for the Arts exhibition now at Rosslyn's Artisphere, illustrates the soaring quality of this art. Her magnificently graceful sculpture is made from painted steel.

Dalya Luttwak's work alone makes the exhibit worth seeing, but there are many other wonderful works. Go soon, because the exhibit closes this Friday.

Rosslyn newsbox clean-up behind schedule

Newsboxes that aren't maintained and that distribute low-quality papers detract from Rosslyn's cityscape. Rosslyn BID's Newsbox Project seemed like promising effort to clean-up Rosslyn's streets. But it has fallen behind its posted schedule.

The Ode Street Tribune provides free home delivery of its newspaper. Just enter your email address in the box on the right hand column of the Tribune's website. Then you'll get the Tribune delivered to you early in the morning to start your day right.

The Tribune urges other Rosslyn papers to follow the Tribune's lead and shift to free home delivery.

don't miss Dosik's Cosplay and Dom Flemons at Rosslyn's Artisphere

You can see some great photographs of fans doing cosplay on Artisphere's video screens, but only through this Sunday, March 1. Cosplay involves dressing up as fictional characters that you love. Keep in mind, however, that real-world laws still apply.  Mike Dosik, a Rosslyn-area native, took these photographs through three years' attendance at fan conventions and fairs.

For an excellent Saturday double header, check out Dosik's cosplay photos and then attend the 8pm performance of Dom Flemons:
A multi-instrumentalist, Flemons plays his trademark banjo, guitar, harmonica, fife, bones, drums and quills in addition to singing. His work with the Carolina Chocolate Drops earned the group a Grammy Award for its 2011 album Genuine Negro Jig. 
Tickets for Dom Flemons show are $18. Order yours in advance before the show sells out.

whatever it takes to get to Rosslyn

Amid last Saturday's fierce snowstorm, Aaron Wieczorek set out from Crystal City on a mountain bike. He made it to Rosslyn.

Arriving in Rosslyn in difficult conditions is one of those rare triumphs of a persevering spirit. No matter the conditions, dare to struggle to get to Rosslyn. Aaron achieved that victory. You can, too.
