For three days in June, the SuperNOVA performance art festival enlivened the streets of Rosslyn, bringing more than 75 emerging and established local, national, and international artists to energize public spaces and engages audiences in unexpected ways. As Arlington TV covered the festival, we wondered what benefits hosting such a festival could bring into our community, beyond the groundbreaking creativity on view. So we spoke with festival producer Philippa Hughes, Cecilia Cassidy, Executive Director of Rosslyn BID and Karen Vasquez, Director of Cultural Affairs at Arlington Economic Development about the ramifications of the festival, both cultural and economic.
