Event is FREE (bring your own mat)!   These open vinysa flow classes will be taught by Lisa Marie Thalhammer, a noted artist and certified yoga instructor. Through her class, Lisa Marie will celebrate sculpture and bring a renewed awareness of the art that surrounds us every day. These classes will give participants an opportunity to deepen their understanding of public art and allow for new associations with familiar pieces to be created. Kicking off the series on International Sculpture Day, an annual worldwide event that furthers the creation and understanding of sculpture and its unique, vital contribution to society.

Sunday April 24th from 11AM-12PM At Penrose Square: 2503 Columbia Pike, Arlington, VA 22204   The first yoga session will be focused on Echo by artist Richard Deutsch. Deutsch’s interactive sculpture is inspired by the Three Sisters Radio Towers, formerly located near Columbia Pike and Courthouse Road in Arlington. The Towers, built in 1913 by the Navy as cutting edge technology, broadcasted the first trans-Atlantic radio signal in 1915, connecting Arlington with the Eiffel Tower.
Sunday, May 1st from 11AM-12PM At Verizon Plaza: 1320 N Courthouse Rd, Arlington, VA 22201   The second yoga session will be focused on Untitled by artist Kendall Buster. Buster describes her sculptures as “drawings in space”, referring to the open armature design that permits people to see through the structures. The grouping of chambers allows visitors to enter the sculpture and experience feelings of both confinement and security. This public art project was funded by Bell Atlantic (Verizon).
Monday, May 9th from 5:30PM-6:30PM In Ballston: 4005 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22207   The third and final session will be focused on Transparent Tapestry by artist Tim Tate. Sixteen vertical bands of multi-colored glass are installed between the rungs of this 40 foot long fence which separates the public plaza from the private, residential courtyard. The glass panels were kiln-cast, a process by which one-time-use plaster molds are placed inside of 1550 degrees Fahrenheit kilns.
