Washington Project for the Arts Presents: Mud Dance

Saturday, August 23, 2014

muddanceThis Saturday, join the Mud Dance with the Washington Project for the Arts from 12:00pm – 10:00pm. This is a chance to get crafty by contributing to the creation of cob benches for a temporary public park installation by Lance Fung at 4th and I Streets SW.

Titled “Nonuments” the installation seeks to challenge the understanding of the word “monument” and reflect on ideas, peoples and personal struggles that are not the subjects of the traditional monuments that occupy the city.

Guests will also have a chance to meet members of the SW, DC community, enjoy food and dance to great music.

beautdayDC is a city of constant volunteerism, and this Saturday is the ultimate time to give back in the spirit of quality education.

The DC Public School system is hosting its annual beautification day, a citywide effort to “spruce up”  DC public school buildings in preparation for the first day of school. In the past, volunteers and supplies have supported over 100 schools. Beautification efforts included landscaping, trash pick-up, light painting, planting flowers, and other external beautification features.
