In March, the legendary arts presenter, Washington Performing Arts, will host and celebrate the local arts scene and its intersections with political life. Through a networking event for artists and politicians entitled POLITICS & ART: A Jam Session at the Wilson Building, Washington Performing Arts’ newly created Mars Urban Arts Initiative will showcase local artists and celebrate Washington’s rich artistic legacy and current culture. This event will provide artists from different genres and backgrounds with an opportunity to network and fortify the culture of D.C. It will also be an opportunity for government officials to share their own artistic talents and passion for the arts, while providing a platform for Washington Performing Arts to further its mission of actively engaging community artists through the Mars Urban Arts Initiative. We will feature musicians, dancers, poets, and visual artists. The event will also have an arts education component where we will showcase local student arts programs and performers.
Washington Youth Garden will have a table at this event, so please come on by and visit!
Time: 5:30 pm-8:30 pm
Location: John A. Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
