The award-winning Arts in Foggy Bottom outdoor sculpture biennial, one of Washington’s leading programs for presenting public art, is back for its fourth season.
The 2014 exhibition, Sculpted: Histories Revealed, opens May 17th and features 16 contemporary sculptures by 15 artists, most of whom are nationally recognized. The works, presented on private properties and businesses, respond to the spaces, personae, and stories of the Historic Foggy Bottom neighborhood.
The exhibition was selected by 2014 curator and public art expert Deirdre Ehlen MacWilliams, in partnership with Arts in Foggy Bottom founders and co-directors Jackie Lemire, Jill Nevius and Mary Kay Shaw, with support from the Arts in Foggy Bottom advisory committee.
U.S. Congressman John Lewis
The Foggy Bottom West End Village and the Foggy Bottom Association are pleased to invite you to attend a special appearance by The Honorable John Lewis, Member of Congress, 5th District of Georgia. We are privileged to have Congressman Lewis visit our community to share his insights and thoughts about the history — and future — of civil rights.
His courage and life-long devotion to individual freedoms and liberties have long inspired others and brought him world-wide recognition, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, April 29, 7:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s Parish, 2430 K St NW. Reservations recommended. RSVP to email@example.com
Between March 20th and April 15th hundreds of volunteers will take to the streets of DC for the ‘Age-Friendly Block-by-Block Walk’ to identify neighborhood assets and issues needing attention all through the lens of DC residents 60 and older. When the data from all the Walk areas is combined, it will help the city improve policy and practice to make daily life better for everyone.
