Join us for the launch of the Petworth Community Wall: A rotating space for community artwork, 829 Upshur Street NW (in partnership with Petworth Citizen and Upshur Street Books)
The first display of this new space is The Hunger Wall Poster Project — join us for a Community Wheatpaste Saturday, May 5, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and help the DC Public Library create a Hunger Wall for 2018!
On view through Summer 2018: The Hunger Wall Poster Project is Inspired by multiethnic, multiracial activism of the Poor People’s Campaign in 1968, which brought over 50,000 protestors to D.C. to demand an end to poverty, the DC Public Library is creating displays of posters by local activist artists who use art as a tool for resistance and social justice: Nando Álvarez, Adrienne Gaither, Monolith and Justin Poppe (co-founders of 411 Collective), and NoMüNoMü. Posters by artists and library patrons will be displayed at branch libraries and throughout the city in spring and summer 2018.
At #PetworthWall on Saturday from 10am-2pm, you cna help us create a wheatpasted installation of posters. Later this summer, we will add additional posters from a community poster workshop at #PetworthLibrary in July.
