At 12 p.m. on Wednesday January 30, the public is invited to the Wilson Building for a guided tour through the City Hall public collection of art on permanent display on floors 1-5 of the Wilson building. The tour will be led by a local artist featured in the collection- Ellyn Weiss.
The City Hall Collection, "HeArt of the City", has been assembled over the past two years under the sponsorship of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. It is the richest and largest permanent exhibition of the work of local artists in the city, featuring a broad range of work, from internationally known artists such as Jacob Kainen, Sam Gilliam and William Christenberry, to work by most of the artists of significance working in our area now. All styles and media are included. The collection truly provides a window into the scope of creative talent and energy that DC offers today.
This is a unique chance to enjoy the collection along with one of the artists and to share your responses. This will be a bi-monthly occurrence.
The tour is free; however space is limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with the number in your party. Meet at the receptionist's desk on the first floor near the Pennsylvania Avenue entrance - the building is located at 1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW. ID is required to enter the building.
