Ten Miles Square: PIXTOUR with Warehouse for FotoWeek DC


Well, it’s no secret that I love photography so I’m super excited about all the FotoWeek activities.

I received the following email from the folks at Ten Miles Square. It sounds amazing. Be sure to take advantage of it!

PixTour brings art to the people who are out and about. Take a walk, have a drink and a meal, and see the art of photography in Dupont, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, 14th Street, Anacostia and More. PixTour is an informal showing of photography on local walls and windows.

PixTour, a project of FotoWeek DC 2008, is showing the work of area photographers at 40 bars, clubs, restaurants, theaters, and shops around DC. The project was organized by Molly Ruppert and the Warehouse, with many photographers suggested by Ten Miles Square.

You can find Ten Miles Square curated shows at the following venues:

Big Bear Cafe — Cesar Lujan
Wonderland — Pat Padua
Red Rocks Pizza — Marie Kwak
Sticky Fingers — Parikha Solanki Mehta
DC9 — Jack Whitsitt and Paivi Solonan
Velvet Lounge — Angela Kleis
Nellie’s — James Calder

Warehouse is also featuring more PixTour at their gallery (with one photo from each photographer who volunteered for the project), along with an exhibit by Byron Peck, famed Washington muralist, with a reception on Friday, November 21, 6 to 10 p.m.

After the jump check out some photos sent to me of Room 11 located at 11th and Lamont.

  • So I went to the opening at Big Bear last Sat night, as it had been advertised on the CH listerve. However, it sucked bigtime. First, I went b/c I love Big Bear and I was excited to see this going down on a Sat night. But the coffeeshop wasn’t open.

    The artist — I imagine it was him — was standing near the bar when we walked in, and there were a few people surrounding him. There was wine on the bar behind him. I did not feel welcome at all — the group of people just kind of looked at me and my friend and did nothing to make us feel like we should stay — it was odd since the coffee bar wasn’t open. So we looked at the pictures and left. It left a real sour taste in my mouth for a local artist trying to build up his supporters.
