Staying Connected during COVID-19

We recognize the uncertainty that weighs on all of us as our communities respond to the precautions around COVID-19. While we all must do our part to prevent the spread of the virus, we as an organization also feel a responsibility to continue to engage our community through the arts in these times of extended isolation.


The ACA will be regularly compiling activities, resources, and ideas for beating the social distancing blues. We plan to use this page to update new ideas regularly, so check back often!

Nurture/Nature Gallery Tour



On View: February 6 - March 31, 2020

Opening Reception: Thursday, Feb 27, 7-9pm

Given the closures and precautions surrounding COVID-19, we are pleased to be able to provide the public a virtual tour of the exhibition! Check it out here. 

The Arlington Center for the Arts and Century 21 Adams is pleased to present the inaugural exhibition in our biannual photography exhibition series, FOCUS. The 2020 theme, Nurture/Nature invites artists, and in turn audiences, to explore their individual relationship with nature, as well as our collective impact on the natural world.


This exhibition features 36 photographs which investigate how human and natural evolution influence each other, as well as the human responsibility to others, the future, and nature itself.

Resources for Artists

We recognize the impact and hardship this kind of a global event has on our artists and freelance workers. We are using this space to share any resources that are brought to our attention that we feel could be beneficial to those most vulnerable in these uncertain economic times.
