“I thought you guys might be interested in posting something about the “Blind Whino” art club project happening at the old painted church in SW. This seems like one of the coolest projects happening in the city.”

The indiegogo fundraising page for Blind Whino SW Arts Club says:

[GOAL #1] To raise funds for continued improvements to the 138 year old building nestled in Southwest Washington DC in our Nations Capitol. Although we have cleaned up the building and commissioned two amazing artists to paint the Exterior (HENSE – ATL) and Interior (MEGGS – AUS) of the building there is still quite a bit to do. We need to further improve the building with items such as painting on resin floors, bringing in 20 additional artists to paint the exhibit halls and project spaces, changing of light fixtures, repairing of the roof and items of the like.

[GOAL #2] Once our goal is met to solidify all cosmetics within the space we can initiate the second phase which is to raise funds for additional programing at our annual G40 Art Summit held in September 2013. We are planning to do a full lineup of programming throughout the month to bring residents from DC, Maryland and Virginia down to the Southwest Waterfront. Programming will consist of Art Related Events, Musical Performances and Art Workshops. We are also planning a Private Fundraising Concert with special celebrity guests hosts and musical entertainment to help fund our project.
