Public art is all around us in Arlington! Whether you are visiting for the first time or a lifelong Arlingtonian, we hope you enjoy these public art tours.

Since 1979, when art was first negotiated as part of a private development project, Arlington has been an innovator in the field of public art. That first artwork – Nancy Holt’s internationally acclaimed Dark Star Park – was dedicated in 1984. More than thirty-five years later, Arlington is home to a diverse and rich collection of over seventy permanent public artworks.
