Upcoming Curator Tour!
Heart of DC: The John A. Wilson Building City Hall Public Art Collection in Washington, DC

City Hall Art Collection Tour
Beginning at 12 p.m. on Wednesday March 26, Sondra N. Arkin will be leading a guided tour through the City Hall Art Collection on permanent display on floors G-5 in the Wilson Building. This tour will focus on the women in the collection in honor of Women's History Month -- and will also be the first introduction to the 28 newest pieces in the collection.

The City Hall Art Collection, Heart of the City, has been assembled over the past three 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 100 + local artists in the city, featuring a broad range of work, from internationally known artists to work by many 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 the curator and to share your responses. Tours are given bi-monthly by either the curator or one of the artists.

The tour is free; however, space is limited. Please RSVP to Beth Baldwin call (202)724-6170 or email 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.

p.s..................Denee has two photo works in this wonderful collection on the 3rd floor east!
