From a press release:

“Entertainment, refreshments, studio tours, and dedication of the Victor L. Selman Community Gallery will be part of the festive grand opening celebration of the Brookland Artspace Lofts on Tuesday, Oct. 25.

Located at 3305 Eighth Street N.E. in the Brookland neighborhood, Brookland Artspace Lofts is a mixed-use arts facility developed by Artspace Projects, the nation’s leading developer of space for artists and arts organizations.

The $13.2 million project contains 39 affordable rental units, each with both residential and studio space, for artists and their families. It also has a rehearsal studio, classroom, and office space designed to serve Dance Place, which occupies the building next door; a community gallery on the main floor; and a full green roof installed and maintained by DC Greenworks. Tuesday’s event will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a Drum Call and Gathering performed by the Cuban salsa dance troupe DC Casineros. The formal program will begin at 6:15 p.m. with a welcome by the Honorable Mayor Vincent Gray. Artspace Director of Properties Heidi Kurtze will host the evening. The event will also include a performance by Coyaba Dance Theater, a West African dance company will.”
