Art All Night Comes this Friday!

This Friday night, art will be taking place all around the neighborhood. That’s because Art All Night is coming to Georgetown.

This event (which has sister happenings in neighborhoods across the city) will take place at a long list of places from 5:30 pm until 10:30 pm (so, not “all” night, in case you were worried about noise…) The events will take place mostly along the Wisconsin Ave. corridor from N St. all the way up to R St. The list of them is really quite long! But GM wanted to highlight a couple. First, the Great Zucchini will be performing at Hyde-Addison at 5:30. This legendary magician in a local favorite among the pre-school set. Second, the Duke Ellington School Radical Elite show band will be performing at the Georgetown Library at 6:00pm. And finally, a Georgetown summer photo exhibition (and competition!) will take place on the second floor of the Georgetown Theater building (i.e. the Compass Coffee) starting at 6pm.

But that’s just a small snippet! Here’s the whole list:

Georgetown Neighborhood Library

3260 R St NW

6:00 – 10:00 pm

DETAILS

Join us for the Art All Night Kick Off Performance by the Duke Ellington School of the Arts Radical Elite Show Band at 6:00pm in the front of the Library.

The Georgetown Neighborhood Library is one of the 26 locations belonging to the District of Columbia Public Library, and since its debut in 1935, it continues to serve as the “pride of the community” in the Georgetown area. Erected on the Georgetown National Register Historic District, the library features the only local history archive in town in its Peabody Room, eponymous with George Peabody, a 19th-century businessman who had gathered and cataloged materials decades before the library’s founding. After a damaging fire in 2007, the library underwent a substantial renovation that both retains its original lineaments and adds thereto children’s and teens’ spaces. Now, the 87-year-long library connects the past and present of the Georgetown neighborhood and presents them to locals and visitors alike.

What is the DC art world?

Todd von Ammon (who opened a contemporary art gallery in Georgetown just a few years ago, which remains the only one of its kind) will moderate a discussion between collectors, curators and artists of the district and attempt to answer the question “What is the DC
art world?”.

BUSINESS & ORG PROMOTIONS

Maria & Alberto De La Cruz Art Gallery

3535 Prospect St. NW

Open From 6:00 – 10:30 pm

PROMOTION

Join us for the Opening Reception of the exhibition “Mary Kelly: To Witness The Future.” Light refreshments will be served from 6:00 – 8:00pm.

Mary Kelly (American b. 1941, lives Los Angeles, CA) has influenced conceptual and feminist art practices and shaped the way art is taught for decades. This exhibition is the first to specifically explore her long engagement with political movements. The works on view here were produced between 2005 and 2020, but they reference the responses of women and women-aligned activists to key issues of equal rights in the United States and Europe since the 1960s. With a range of collaborators, methods, and materials — including live happenings and household dryer lint — she has mined historical archives to examine not only recurring themes of gender discrimination, racism, nuclear war, and the climate crisis, but also the forms of resistance they have generated.

This exhibition supported by Helaine Posner (C ’75)

Curated by Al Miner.
