About This Event
Join us for a summer evening of tasty bites representing the diverse restaurants of Central 14th Street NW--a cultural celebration with neighbors accompanied by music, art, and more!
Rebar, a public art and design studio, is teaming up with the DC Office of Planning, 14th Uptown Business Association (14-UBA), neighborhood residents, local restaurants, and artists to produce a progressive dinner and culture crawl down 14th St NW. The crawl will make stops at several locations for a sampling of local flavor and cool refreshments.
This event is part of a series of activities taking place along upper 14th Street, funded by a DCOP ArtPlace grant. As proposed in the Central 14th Small Area Plan, slated for Council approval this summer, existing businesses along 14th Street offer a diversity of uses that should be marketed to visitors and neighbors. This event, open to the public, is an intimate neighborhood tour.
Tickets can be purchased during the event or in advance at www.openkitchn.eventbrite.com. Revenue from event ticket sales will be reinvested back into the corridor to support local business development and seed economic initiatives.
Street artists DECOY, Chanel Compton, and their crew transform a lonesome wall into a sight for sore eyes.
From abstract typography to pop culture imagery, the works of this artist can be seen all over DC and beyond.
