EVENT: Step into Spring with JBG SMITH at Arlington's 2021 National Cherry Blossom Festival WHAT: First-time festival sponsor and developer of National Landing, the DC area's premier mixed-use community, JBG SMITH, has created a few on-site and virtual experiences designed to honor the festival's traditions and help the local community "Step into Spring." Some of the new programs for this festival includes: • Art in Bloom - JBG SMITH brings the spirit of spring into its Water Park Towers development through participation in a community-wide installation of 25 oversized cherry blossom statues painted by local artists. o The developer commissioned local DC artist, Hiba Alyawer, to install an art piece titled "Happy Dots" as a reminder that we are starting to come out of isolation and can celebrate (safely) in our local community. I'd be happy to pass along photos of the Hiba and the sculpture, as well as connecting you with her for an interview if you'd like. She has a fantastic backstory as an Iraqi-American abstract artist. • Light Installation - JBG SMITH's Water Park Towers will be lit in pink, a spectacular sight for (safe) evening and night viewing. • Blossom Kite Fly, a beautiful celebration of the longstanding tradition of kite flying modeled after the Festival's Blossom Kite Festival, featuring personal neighborhood and backyard kite-flying events and a series of family-friendly virtual and online activities • Cherry Picks, a special program supporting D.C. area restaurants and celebrating the area's vibrant, diverse, and delicious cuisine WHERE: 1770 Crystal Dr Arlington, VA 22202 WHEN: March 20 - April 11, 2021 CONTACT: Jami Gross Havas Formula for JBG SMITH Cell: 610-731-8486
