Over 60 local artists will participate in the Beautiful Minds, an art exhibit curated by Art Whino, which will premiere their show as part of the grand opening weekend celebration of The Yards Park, DC’s new regional waterfront destination and a centerpiece of the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. The Beautiful Minds show will exhibit in the historic Lumber shed pavilion as part of The Yards Park opening celebration that includes a weekend of musical performances, kids activities, fitness classes, a doggie social, food and drink, water features, fireworks and more. The event is FREE and open to the public.

The Beautiful Minds art exhibit will look at what makes an artist who he or she is in their pure essence. Artists use their canvases, unedited and honestly, to express what they see as a global transformation of consciousness in society and as a mirror to today’s ills, joys, and daily tribulations.

Visitors to Beautiful Minds will also have the opportunity to experience the new Yards Park. Like no other park in the region, The Yards Park is a new regional waterfront destination, offering a whole new way for local residents to enjoy the outdoors and the river. The 5.5 acre park--the size of about four football fields--includes a ¼ mile long boardwalk along the water and was designed as a series of unique “outdoor rooms” to provide a variety of experiences from the great lawn to the sculptural pedestrian bridge, the waterfall/canal basin to the overlook and riverfront gardens.
