Welcome to a special episode of the show brought to you in partnership with Arlington Economic Development, where we discuss issues related to the workforce, the role of place in the future of work, and the role of the creative sector in a larger business context. We call this Inspiration + Location
Today we’re going to talk about the role of public art in place and its relationship to the people who live and work in a place like Arlington County, Virginia.
To help me discuss this topic, I’d like to welcome Angela Anderson Adams, Director Arlington Public Art at Arlington Economic Development.
