Arts on Foot

Today is the Arts on Foot festival around the Penn Quarter.

Arts on Foot will feature visual and performing artists at multiple venues between 4th and 14th Streets, Pennsylvania Avenue and L Street.

New this year are a preview of the 2006 Capital Fringe Festival, participation at the Canadian Embassy of the DC Shorts Film Festival, sculptor Robert Cole’s street exhibit at Gallery Place, and Woolly Mammoth’s new theatre, which people may take tours of during Arts on Foot.

Edison Place Gallery with an exhibit organized by the YWCA has also joined the list of participants. And the juried Art Market is more than fifty percent larger than last year’s market with many well-known names exhibiting and selling their artwork as part of the festival.

Along with all of the day's scheduled events, 22 area restaurants will be offering "Samplings" of their cuisine at modest prices on F Street between 8th and 9th and celebrated chefs from a number of these and other restaurants will demonstrate their cooking skills.

Details, schedules and directions here.

See ya there!
