By offering arts groups affordable space and services in lieu of large cash grants, Arlingon Cultural Affairs has fostered one of the most vibrant arts scenes in the DC metropolitan area. By creatively using its status as a government body to leverage resources for the arts, the County demonstrated that artists and government can work together, and transformed its own cultural landscape in the pro

cess. The first and only arts organization to win the Innovations in American Government Award from Harvard University and the Ford Foundation, Arlington Cultural Affairs is now a national model for regional arts support. Arlington Cultural Affairs provides programs and services that build community and transform lives by enhancing enjoyment and understanding of, and participation in, the arts. The unit is a Division of the Arlington County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources.

Tracing its roots back to the 19th century, Arlington's Queen City evolved into a vibrant African American community. As a cultural hub, it housed essential institutions like Mount Olive Baptist Church and the Queen City School during the segregation era.

Today, Metropolitan Park is home to another "Queen City," a powerful art installation honoring the community's legacy. The installation in Metropolitan Park symbolizes a critical moment in Queen City's history: the 1941 seizure of Black-owned land by the federal government for the Pentagon's construction.

This art piece, more than a memorial, is a living legacy and a communal effort to preserve the often-overlooked narratives of the lost community. It prompts reflection on urban development complexities and the enduring spirit of communities in the face of adversity, making Queen City an integral part of Arlington's rich heritage.
