Enjoy Quality Community Art at Nearby Northern Virginia Art Center

Feeling arty?  Lucky for you, you live at 220 Twentieth Street Apartments, located just a stone’s throw from the new Northern Virginia Art Center.

Located at 2120-A Crystal Plaza Arcade, this Arlington Artists Alliance gallery promotes the works of established and emerging regional artists.  The Alliance’s mission is to make regional fine art accessible to the public through monthly exhibits, special events, and art workshops.   So go there and take in all of the beautiful works in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, glass, ceramics and handmade jewelry.

The cool thing is that you could go down there, become inspired, and then become a part of this community of regional artists yourself by providing your own artwork.  After all, this is Arlington, you live at 220 Twentieth Street, and it’s all about being a part of the community, right?

We’ll be there with our friends from 220 Twentieth Street, being all high-brow, channeling Degas or Picasso or another awesome artist, wearing our beret and scarf and pondering arty quotes like da Vinci’s “Art is never finished, only abandoned.” Find more information about the Northern Virginia Arts Center here http://crystalcity.org/go/northern-virginia-arts-center.

Enjoy Quality Theater at the Nearby Synetic

We love theater in all of its forms – Broadway, off Broadway, and especially not far from

220 Twentieth at Synetic Theater.  A true artistic gem in the community, Synetic received 15 Helen Hayes nods for King Lear, and was awarded a 2010 National Theatre Company Grant from American Theatre Wing, founder of the Tonys®!

So we visit to see their most recent drama playing out on stage whenever possible.  Beginning this September 20th, we’re going to explore the famed life of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in “Jekyll and Hyde”, Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Victorian tale of good and evil.  But this tale will be told at Synetic adding their signature physicality and darkly dramatic aesthetic.  Updating the story’s setting from 19th century London to modern-day America, Synetic’s version will put a new spin on the strange case of the charming and sociable Synetic Theatre, Crystal City, Crystal City BID, 220 Twentieth Street, Crystal City UndergroundDr. Jekyll and his sinister friend, accused murderer Mr. Hyde

Oooh, sounds really exciting, and sinister and artistic and dark…

So make sure to gather all your friends and get tickets to see the show!  After all, theatre is best enjoyed in community, with friends who are willing to walk down to the theater with you, walk you home, and hold your hand during the scary parts…
