Celebrate Ivy City is Sunday


From the Facebook:

“Sunday at 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM
The Park at Capitol Ave and Mt. Olivet Rd.

Celebrate the stories and spirit of Ivy City!

+ Enjoy free food
+ Listen to live perfomances by local Ivy City artists
+ Screenprint your own free t-shirt

We’ll also celebrate the big “reveal” of the brand new IVY CITY sign that #theRealIvyCity youth created with the support of the Screenprinting Team at The Sanctuaries. More info below.

“Ivy City Is…” is a collaborative, resident and artist-led creative project that invites residents to customize an individual “Ivy City Is…” sign, declaring what this community means to them. A series of large plywood letters, spelling “IVY CITY” are screenprinted with a portraits of residents with their customized signs, historic images, and maps. This installation was crafted during a series of free, screen printing workshops, open to the public at Open Studio DC. These letters are placed throughout the neighborhood and will be unveiled together.

Co-sponsored by Empower DC, [bc] workshop, LISC, Open Studio DC, and The Sanctuaries.

This project is supported by the DC Office of Planning (DCOP)’s grant “Crossing the Street: Building DC’s Inclusive Future through Creative Placemaking” from the Kresge Foundation.”
