Call to Artists for Crystal Flight

Crystal City BID Soars with Crystal Flight

A Celebration of Art and Air Crystal City (Arlington, VA)
To highlight an aviation connection, the Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID) is pleased to announce a six-month “Celebration of Flight.” This campaign kicks off with Crystal Flight, which brings 50 (fifty) 5-foot-by-5-foot airplane statues (25 fighter jets and 25 vintage planes) to the
streets of Crystal City in April 2008.

As part of this public art opportunity, the BID is announcing a final Call for Artists. The Crystal City BID welcomes completed applications from interested artists and designers throughout the area. Details can be found at Once selected, talented area artists will kick-off the airplane design and paint process in late January. Lowe Enterprises Real Estate Group has generously provided the workshop space to store and decorate the planes, and JK Moving and Storage, Inc., has partnered to provide critical technical support for the handling of the planes.
