Artisphere in Rosslyn, VA.

The arts venue known as Artisphere opened in Rosslyn in 2010 with the goal of bringing art exhibits, music, and theater performances to a part of Arlington better known for its corporate canyons.

Critics say arts institutions like Artisphere need time to grow as well as public support. We explore the issues.
