Despite these unprecedented times, Regency’s Market Common Clarendon is in full bloom. Newly home to “Floral Sky,” a public art installation created by Los Angeles-based artist Michael Kalish, the Arlington, VA-based shopping center recently brought a unique pop of color to the corner of Clarendon Blvd and N. Edgewood Street, just outside The Loft Office.
In partnership with Arlington Cultural Affairs — a division of Arlington Economic Development with a mission to create, support, and promote the arts in Arlington — the installation was commissioned and funded by Regency Centers in collaboration with local community members.
Floral Sky is the product of a truly remarkable effort between Michael Kalish, Regency Centers, and the Arlington community at-large,” said Jason Yanushonis, Manager, Investments. “We hope this incredible installation will encourage fellow Market Common Clarendon merchants and visitors to stop for a moment to breathe, look up and be present.
After more than 75 artist submissions, Regency selected Kalish to design the piece due to his outstanding portfolio and passion for creating innovative, meaningful public art. The sculpture was then designed, fabricated, built in and shipped from Los Angeles before installation.
