Frequently Asked Questions

Artist Kipp Kobayashi is interested in identifying traces of human activity left behind and imprinted into the structures and systems of our physical world like a patina. His public art practice stems from his experiences growing up as an Asian American, leading to a lifelong interest in deconstructing preconceived notions of who and what we are to understand better unique patterns that present a more nuanced interpretation of identity and cultural belonging.

To guide the public artist selection process, the County formed three advisory panels that included members of the Arlington community: the Technical Advisory Panel, the Art Advisory Panel, and the Public Art Committee. The committees met over the course of a year to define goals for the project, review artist submissions, and select artist Kipp Kobayashi. Based on this engagement, these three groups will ultimately recommend the final artwork design.
