LUMEN8Anacostia

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Dozens of local artists will head to Anacostia from noon to midnight to highlight the viability of an east of the river arts district, transforming vacant Ward 8 warehouses into eclectic galleries. Consider the Lightbox, the Pink Line Project's pop-up in the former Metropolitan Police Department evidence warehouse, with a walk-through installation from Bluebrain, food from Busboys & Poets and cash bars. Also not to be missed: the Party Behind the Big Chair, which features six hours of local poetry a short walk from Anacostia's most visible landmark from 4:15 to 10 p.m.
