Opportunity for Artists

Are you an artist who would like to exhibit your outdoor sculpture work or other installation for an entire month? Are you a homeowner who would be interested in hosting a beautiful work of art in your front yard throughout August? If so, then the North Capitol Main Street Art + Music Walk wants to hear from you!

Now in its third year, the annual North Capitol Main Street Art + Music Walk (formerly known as “First On 1st”) brings together residents of DC’s North Capitol neighborhoods with local businesses, artists and other creatives, and showcases the area as a whole to the entire District. Homeowners in Bloomingdale, Eckington, and Truxton Circle graciously offer up their lawns to serve as pop-up installation spaces throughout the month of August, as the neighborhood celebrates its culture of community – and its community of culture – by showcasing live music, great art, and fine foods from area restaurants.

This year, we have a goal of including twenty (20) artists and homes to display art, and there will be four stages set up to feature live performances during the kick-off celebration on Saturday, August 6.

If you’re interested in taking part, please e-mail josef@pinklineproject.com to get involved — and we`ll see you at this year’s North Capitol Main Street Art + Music Walk!
