I want to congratulate Congress Heights Main Streets and the Ward 8 Arts & Culture Collaborative for a job well done on the Arts All Night event held a couple of weekends ago. Arts All Night was an all-night exploration and celebration of contemporary art, encompassing five of DC’s most vibrant neighborhoods. This year the event was hosted in four neighborhoods across the city. Congress Heights represented Ward 8!
These two organizations turned the St. Elizabeths Pavilion into an art extravaganza. From fashion shows to mural drawings there was something for everyone! It was great was you could tell they made a concerted effort to infuse the energy of the community into the event. I hope this is the first of many events in Congress Heights. I fully expect that next year it will be bigger and better!
