The ACAC first announced Live Arts Arlington in April as an opportunity for artists from across all performance and art forms to “take to the streets” over the summer to share their work with Arlington residents and visitors.
Live Arts Arlington is a public-performance and creation initiative designed to put live arts in the path of the broadest swath of the public. Since 2019, programs have included Egyptian dance; puppetry; classical, jazz and popular music performance; various forms of art making; portraiture; and basket weaving.
