Washington Project for the Arts celebrates its 40-year anniversary this weekend with the opening reception of “Washington Produced Artists,” and reveal of the brand new gallery space in the Atlantic Plumbing building, located near the U Street Corridor, in the heart of the cultural district.
The inaugural exhibition in the new space will serve as a proud recognition of local artists who created significant works in conjunction with WPA early in their careers and who have since built esteemed reputations.
Curated by Laura Roulet and featuring work by longtime D.C. metro-area resident artists William Christenberry, Jim Sanborn, Joyce J. Scott and Dan Steinhilber, “Washington Produced Artists,” showcases a mobile public art project created by Workingman Collective, a video installation by Michelle Lisa Herman, and an opening reception performance by Maida Withers Dance Construction Company.
The opening reception for the inaugural exhibition will be held this Saturday, November 14 from 6 – 9 p.m. with the exhibition running through December 19, 2015.
