more art coming to Rosslyn

The Arlington Blvd/Courthouse Rd/10th St Interchange construction will include art that adds to the experience of the many persons coming into Rosslyn.  Artist Vicki Scuri describes her design thus:
I took inspiration from the heart-shaped leaves of the native red bud to create abstract patterns that add texture to the concrete walls along Route 50.  The bridge spans located at Courthouse Road and 10th Street will be accentuated with laser-cut, weathered steel grills based on the same design.  The patterns flow along the walls and the bridges like theatrical curtains, adding drama, scale, and content to the new infrastructure.
You can see detailed sketches of Scuri's design in an exhibit, Design for the Civic Realm, at Artisphere through June 19.
