Rosslyn CAFÉ with Lukman Ahmad

Rosslyn CAFÉ is a BID event series through which we bring you Community, Arts, Food and Entertainment for four consecutive Fridays in the spring. These events advance the Rosslyn BID’s goal to create free community events that allow residents and employees of all ages to enjoy unknown or unused spaces in the neighborhood, and bring local artists and food to Rosslyn. We are excited to bring back Rosslyn CAFÉ at the Bennett Park Art Atrium so more people will learn about this beautiful but little-known space.

Featured Artist

Lukman Ahmad: Through expressionism and imagination, Luke presents the spectrum of a human experience, and invites the viewer to know another culture. Born in Syria, from a brush, music, dance, laughter, suffering, compassion, and passion, he incites the viewer’s eye to experience a story of a people. He combines symbolism and imagination, color and rhythm, to transport the viewer into the world he lived and the emotions he witnessed.
