Third annual (e)merge art fair returns to Capitol Skyline Hotel

In one week's time, the Capitol Skyline Hotel will be overrun with art lovers.

The third annual (e)merge art fair opens Oct. 3 with a preview and poolside party from 7 to 11 p.m. and continues through Oct. 6. Attractions at this year's celebration of contemporary art include 30 miniature art shows by exhibitors on one of the hotel's upper floors; diverse work by 48 artists scattered throughout the building; panel discussions; and tons of performance art everywhere, including in the hotel pool. A full schedule of programs is available here, but be sure and check out my sneak peek, too, along with this photo gallery of scenes from fairs past and present.

Tickets to the preview event are $35; $50 at the door. Daily admission Oct. 4-6 is $15; $10 for students, seniors and members of groups of 10 or more. On Oct. 4 from noon to 3 p.m., students are admitted free. The fair is open Oct 4-5 from noon to 7 p.m. and Oct. 6 from noon to 5.

Born and raised in Washington, D.C., Michael O’Sullivan has worked since 1993 at The Washington Post, where he covers art, film and other forms of popular — and unpopular — culture.
