The auction for DC PLAY BLOCKS – a unique project that it is both a public awareness and a public art campaign. Each of the 22 PLAY BLOCKS is based on the theme “Quality Preschool Matters” and showcases the work of DC artists, and artists working with youth organizations on three sides. Every BLOCK has a fourth panel which is a mirror with the message “Every Child is a National Treasure.”
The Commemorative BLOCK was designed by nationally renowned DC artist Di Bagley Stovall and illustrates the need for all children to reach the sun, moon and the stars. This block was unveiled in October 2006 and displayed outside the John A. Wilson District Building.
The other twenty-one BLOCKS have been strategically located in all eight wards of the City for the summer. DC PLAY BLOCKS were inspired by the DC Party Animal and Pandamania public art projects from a few years ago
