ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Arlington's Artisphere arts center is holding a weekend festival to celebrate its second anniversary in Rosslyn.

The festival includes a solar-powered sound installation called "Sun Boxes." It is made up of 20 speakers with solar panels in public spaces throughout Rosslyn to convey art through sound. It runs Thursday through Saturday.

Artisphere is also holding a Brazilian dance party on Saturday night, featuring bands and DJs.

On Sunday, the festival concludes with a family day, including clown, puppetry, acrobatics, mural painting and theatrical workshops.
