A Local Commission for Artist Linn Meyers

Since seeing Linn Meyers's marvelous wall drawing, at the time being, at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., I've been following the artist's well-deserved successes. I learned most recently that Arlington County, Virginia, where I live, commissioned Meyers's first permanent public art installation for conference rooms in the county's Courthouse Plaza building. The work, Untitled, one of eight commissions through Arlington's Public Art Program, uses the conference rooms' original glass panels as starting point. Meyers's decision to use as her "canvas" the glass already in place proved inspired, creating privacy for conference-room meetings and producing sufficient savings that similar panels could be created and installed for conference rooms on another floor.

The video below shows the creation, design, fabrication, and installation of Untitled, which was dedicated on April 10, 2012.
