By Pat Brogan

Arlington County, Virginia has a new name for its cultural center. The center, which is partly located in the old Newseum building in Rosslyn is now being called the 'Artisphere.'

More than 100 proposed names were looked at, with the public being given the chance to vote on three of them. When it opens in October of this year it will offer community events, live bands as well as national and international contemporary performing and visual artists.
