Put the I into Civic

The public is invited to stand in the space of the missing "i" in the C_vic sculpture to Put the I into Civic. This artwork asks you to consider what Civic means to you. What do you expect from your government? What do you appreciate? Civic Expectations or Treasures? What might be your contribution, your Civic Duty or Civic Pleasure?

Photographed portraits along with the participant's opinion about what Civic means to them will become part of www.reimaginecivic.com by posting with #reimaginecivic or by going to the website to upload images directly.

C_vic will move around in Arlington:
October 12th - behind 2300 Clarendon Blvd
November 18th - inside the lobby of 2100 Clarendon Blvd
April 2017- outside for the summer

This project sponsored by Arlington Public Art is part of Courthouse 2.0: Reimagining the Civic a public art initiative aimed at sparking Public Conversation about the future Courthouse Square by exploring the interaction between Civic Space and Civic Life in Arlington in the twenty-first century.


On October 15th, Linda Hesh stood by her artwork and asked people walking by if they'd like to be part of her artwork. She photographed them and captioned the portraits with what Civic means to them.
