Artisphere hosts international artist exchange

Last week Artisphere hosted artists from Aachen, Germany, in the second leg of an Aachen-Arlington artist exchange called Project 2011: Face to Face.  The German artists stayed in the homes of their Arlington counterparts and worked with them on art at Artisphere.  This part April, the roles had been the reverse with the Arlington artists in Aachen.  Nan Morrison, an Arlington artist who participated in the exchange, stated:
My Face to Face experience has been extremely educational, fun, and personally rewarding in many ways.  The ten-day unique artistic journey and opportunity to work with a group of wonderful and talented artists from Germany is an experience I will always treasure.  Their commitment to the project, professionalism, generosity and excitement to be in America and Arlington, Virginia [and especially Rosslyn] has been infectious and inspirational.
A large crowd gathered this past Thursday night to meet the artists and view results of their collaboration.  Their works are on display at Artisphere through December 11.
