ARTS IN MOTION

In trying to define the unique attributes of Rosslyn, the city has hosted a discussion series called Rooms With A View. This year's focuses on Rosslyn as a center of art, technology and entrepreneurship: "a place of global business and connection."

Thursday evening, arts writer and curator Philippa Hughes will host a panel for a look behind the scenes of SuperNOVA, the Washington region's first performance art festival. As the festival's director she will lead two artists, the managing director of Dance Exchange and a gallery owner and curator through a discussion of performance as an art form.
