Want to just say a few words about the wonderful work of the Washington Project for the Arts, the premier arts organization of the nation’s capital. WPA sponsors workshops from art curators around the world to provide guidance and support to emerging and mid-career artists in this area. And, it sponsors curated art exhibits throughout the District, including at its brand new street level gallery location in North Shaw, a block from Howard University, at 2124 H St NW. It’s a significant contributor to the vibrant art scene of this area.
I was honored to participate in its biggest fund raising event, the Auction Gala, which took place a few weeks ago.
