Tonight: Mid-City Artists Reception; This Weekend: Mid-City Artists Open Studios

This weekend is supposed to provide us with some sunny--if a bit chilly--weather. (In other words, perfect as far as I'm concerned.) So if you're looking for an excuse to be out-and-about in our neighborhood, you might want to take advantage of a couple of arts-related activities.


Tonight, Mid-City Artists is hosting an artist's reception at the Hounshell Real Estate/Gary Fisher Gallery located at 1505 14th Street from 6p-8p. Appetizers courtesy of the Cap City Brewing Company will be served, and all of the Mid-City artists will be in attendance.

This weekend, those same artists will be hosting open studios throughout the neighborhood. A map of all participating artists and their locations can be found here.

Finally, this Monday, November 8, the final of two public meetings regarding the Arts District logo/branding concepts will be held from 7p-9p at the Hamiltonian Gallery at 1353 U Street NW. Those interested in reviewing the preliminary concepts unveiled at the last meeting may do so here.

If the notices for the branding meetings were created by experts, why do they look so bad?

Spending the $200000 on branding is a shame. Commissioning area artists for distinctive public art projects would have been a better approach. Besides, it's unclear how long artists and arts venues can hang on in this neighborhood. Can you please post exactly how the money is being spent and name the individuals who are holding the purse strings?

Anon - all of the info you seek is on the Arts District blog, which I linked to.

We've attempted to access the budget on the branding site several times, but it leads to a dead link...
Would you post the info for the community, please? Thanks. M & M
