With its diverse population and embrace of multicultural influences, Arlington finds many ways throughout the year to celebrate communities all around the world.
But once a year, the Arlington Center for the Arts turns its perspective inward, to commemorate the town itself.
For its 10th consecutive year, “Images of Arlington” centers around the theme of “Putting Arlington on the Map” — and artists of all ages were quick to seize the challenge.
For the past eight years, “Images of Arlington” has also included participation by fifth-graders at Arlington’s two public elementary schools.
Art teacher Deborah Chisholm, who has helped her students participate in the exhibit since it began, set up this year’s undertaking by showing her students ways that contemporary artists had made art from maps.
