1901 Mississippi Ave SE
About This Event
The U.S. Department of State’s Art in Embassies (AIE) program, as part of AIE’s 50th anniversary celebration, has collaborated with THEARC (Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus) and partners including the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design to feature renowned visual artist and dancer Nick Cave in a special Artist Exchange presentation.
The event will highlight THEARC’s partnerships with the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design, the Levine School of Music, and the Washington Ballet. BFA candidates from the Corcoran College of Art + Design worked one-on-one with students from ArtReach--the Corcoran’s arts education outreach program--to create original costumes to be worn in a performance by dancers from the Washington Ballet.
The public is invited to the celebration. In addition to the dance performance, the special “open house” event will include spoken word and musical performances, a wearable “sound art” workshop, a Q&A with artist Nick Cave, free refreshments, and more. Attendance is free.
Who: Artist Nick Cave, The U.S. Department of State’s Art in Embassies, THEARC, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design, the Levine School of Music, and the Washington Ballet.
The Performance at 6 p.m. will take place in THEARC Theater. Other exhibits will be on display throughout THEARC’s facility.
