Record Fair at the Artisphere

A Record Fair was held at the Artisphere. Vendors and consumers gathered for this day long activity. At the midway point, there was a film screening. Afterwards, the director of the movie had a question and answer session with the audience. Ian Mackaye was in attendance.

Rosslyn is located in the northeastern corner of Arlington County, north of Arlington National Cemetery and directly across the Potomac River from Georgetown in Washington, D.C. The numerous high-rise buildings of Rosslyn appears (in some ways) more urban than nearby Washington.

Added to the mix are new condominiums, lively restaurants and exciting shops, all with easy access to Washington and close-in proximity to Interstate-395, the Pentagon and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

Performance Art at the Artisphere

Visiting the Artisphere in Rosslyn was very enjoyable. I was there to see Kaki King, a critically acclaimed female guitarist. Taking the some what spiral stairs past the lounge, and up to the second floor was neat. There were a few art related quotes to read from the walls display, as well as a series of artistic photographs streaming from a projector onto a wall.

Entering the Dome Theatre, there were steep seats which created an immediate intimate closeness with the stage. Looking up, the spherical shape of the Dome Theatre reminded me of a planetarium. During the performance everything was very professional, there were perfectly timed lights and video that corresponded with the acoustic-electric guitar’s rhythms & progressions & physical movements which were a part of King’s kickstarter. During a pausing moment, Kaki King told the audience that this was her third performance of the nights entertainment, entitled ‘the Neck is a Bridge to the Body.’ Overall, I found the music and video to be soothing and cerebral. Afterwards, I left for the Orange line metro station two blocks away, still thinking about the sounds and pictures that I had seen earlier that evening.

The Artisphere is the result of 40 years of community desire culminating with a public & private partnership with Arlington County & Rosslyn Business Improvement District and Monday Properties. Amenities here include:

  • 4,000 sq. ft. Terrace Gallery, plus two additional gallery spaces for visual arts
  • 4,000 sq. ft. Ballroom (3,000 sq. ft. dance floor) for events, performances and live music
  • 220-seat Dome Theatre for concerts, films and presentations
  • 125-seat Black Box Theatre—the new home of WSC Avant Bard
  • 387-seat Spectrum Theatre for concerts and events located just next door
  • Free WiFi
  • Two-story Video Wall screening experimental film and video installations
