You may have noticed that the windows of the empty retail spaces of the convention center have recently been transformed with murals painted directly on the glass. The bay windows along M Street have also been filled with art. The effect is a streetscape enlivened with color and interest. Hopefully the convention center will more actively pursue tenants for its spaces, but in the meantime, these art installation are wonderful additions to the neighborhood.
The art project is known as "Windows into DC" and is brought to us, in part, by the Washington Convention Center Authority and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Windows into DC includes 14 installations of artwork accessible any time of day or night. All of the featured artists are based in Washington, DC.
The groups will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on the outdoor art experience tomorrow (Tuesday, September 29, 2009) at 5:00 pm. The ceremony will be held at the corner of Seventh and M Streets, Northwest.
