Embracing Arlington Arts’ Founder and President Janet Kopenhaver was invited to be the guest on an ArlNow podcast to talk about our non-profit organization, the arts in Arlington, challenges for venue space, and lots more. The podcast can be heard here.
It was an honor to be asked to draft the first “Progressive Voices” column in ArlNow under the leadership of two new writers of that column. It focused on the many positive impacts the arts have on so many sectors of our community, and the points were made more impactful by including quotes from Arlingtonians personally helped by the arts.

Embracing Arlington Arts, in partnership with Arlington Independent Media, hosted a County Board Candidate Forum on the Arts in Arlington last month. It was a standing room only crowd of very energetic arts supporters. The candidates discussed the arts and it was uplifting to hear both for them stress the importance and positive impact the arts have in Arlington. To watch the forum in its entirety, click here.
Embracing Arlington Arts posted a Community Post column in ArlNow with a recap of the sponsors and supporters of the 2nd Annual Celebration of the Arts in Arlington. Read the story here.
To make the point about the dearth of performing arts venues, we published another column with a “Christmas Poem for the Arts in Arlington.” Read the submission here.
