New Temporary Video Art Now on Georgia Avenue
Saturday kicked off a week-long video installation on Georgia Avenue by local artist Philippa Hughes. The project is called SEE/CHANGE which is composed of video portraits of residents and business owners who live and work along Lower Georgia Avenue. The video will be projected from within vacant and other spaces and on the sides of buildings along the corridor each night. According to Philippa Hughes, “commuters and pedestrians will see that they are passing through a thriving and diverse community. Video stories told by residents about their neighborhood will be posted online at seechangedc.com.”
In addition to the video, there will be A community discussion: “What are the changes you see?” tonight from 6:30 to 8 pm at Walls of Books (3325 Georgia); an art workshop called “Welcome to Washington” on Satruday, November 19th; and a Closing party also on the 19th at Midlands (3333 Georgia) beginning at 5:30 pm.
This project is part of a creative placemaking project supported by the DC Office of Planning.
