Martin Luther King Day (January 20, 2014): I shot a great picture in front of the historic Lincoln Theater on U Street of an amazing group of DC Artists. Before we began DCMPD gave us a little reminder that we could be shut down at anytime.
But as Kymone Freeman, the organizer, said, it was a massive cross-section of artists who converged on U st for a #GreatDayonUst flashmob photo. Thanks to Kymone for asking me to document this. I’m betting it was very different from the beautiful picture shot 13 years ago, as everyone was snapping their own pics with their various devices this year. It was a chaotically beautiful sight to behold.
I wanted everyone to stay posed like that forever, but since I can’t have that, the pictures are the next best thing. Thank you to everyone who showed up, you are all stars shining bright.
We are working on print options, should you want one for your collection. Large versions will be on display at Ben’s Chili Bowl, Lee’s Flower shop and Industrial Bank.
Stay tuned for the official shot, this is just a teaser.
Thank you again.
