Art All Night: Nuit Blanche DC
Watch as DC’s creative community re-imagines public and private space and invites us all to see our city anew. Art All Night: Nuit Blanche DC is an all-night exploration and celebration of contemporary art, stretching from the heart of Chinatown to the Shaw neighborhood.
On September 24th, indoor and outdoor venues will showcase work by artists in a diverse range of media-vibrant visual arts, street performances, live music, and DJs contributing to an unprecedented mash-up of cultural experiences in the nation’s capital.
With this inaugural festival Washington DC joins a global network of Nuit Blanche all-night arts events, that started in Paris in 2002 and has captivated audiences from Toronto to Tel Aviv.
I’ll be adding striking black and white images to the landscape of 9th Street NW at 1126 9th ST NW. The images are of and by Words Beats and Life students in Edgewood Terrace and Lincoln Heights. I am the instructor/group leader of an Inside Out Project Group Action. Inside Out is a large-scale (worldwide) art project that transforms message of personal identity into pieces of artistic work.http://wwwinsideoutproject.net
