Pink Line Project art walk makes history!


"Overall, the First on 1st Art + Music Walk made history and excited the local community." Wow! That's what the NOMA News had to say about the art walk that Pink Line Project helped organize a couple weekends ago. Can't wait for next year! You can still check out the art through August. Pick up a map at Big Bear Cafe or Windows Cafe and follow along.

The above picture is from artist Margaret Boozer who did a super cool art installation that had everyone playing in colorful dirt. See more of her pictures here.

Noma News:
The North Capitol Main Street, Inc. First on 1st Art + Music Walk was a tremendous success on Saturday, August 1st. attracting approximately 300 local residents, as well as visitors from outside the local neighborhood. The event included live music and comedy at both Window’s Café and Big Bear Café. Visitors came out between the hours of Noon and 5PM Saturday and received art tour maps provided by The Pink Line Project. The maps included a directory of businesses in the NCMS corridor and an art hunt (scavenger hunt) in which participants located answers to questions pertaining to the local businesses and displayed art on 1st Street, which started at 87 Florida Avenue and concluded at Window’s Cafe. Upon completing the hunt, participants received a free drink from either Big Bear Café or Window’s Café. Also, visitors participated in a wine tasting event at Bloomingdale Wine and Spirits on 1st and Rhode Island Avenue. Overall, the First on 1st Art + Music Walk made history and excited the local community.
