Catie Anchin, Executive Director of the Arlington Arts Center (AAC) on Wilson Boulevard, took a minute from showing one of the Washington Wizards players, Point Guard Cassius Winston, around the AAC. Anchin joined the Arlington Arts Center from the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, where she led advancement and external affairs. Anchin said she wants events like this to connect the art world with the local community. The young artists who took part of a Saturday to paint sneakers that would benefit the Wanda Alston Foundation in Washington,D.C. were forming that link.
