Art All Night DC: here's what's planned for North Capitol Street

Click on the link to read the * entire * Washington City Paper post on this Saturday's Art All Night event.  
Note that there are five DC neighborhoods participating this year, one of which is North Capitol Street.

I have included the info about North Capitol Street.

You’ve Got Eight Hours to See Art All Night. Here’s Your Plan.

This Saturday, in a handful of neighborhoods across D.C., you can spend the whole night at an art party. Well, kinda. This year’s Art All Night: Nuit Blanche dares local artists, performers, and musicians to show off some of their most exciting work until 3 a.m. in venues and lots located in Dupont Circle, Shaw, Congress Heights, and on H and North Capitol streets. You only have eight hours and a lot of ground to cover, so choose wisely and pack an energy shot. Here are some of the more interesting acts on the docket:

North Capitol Street:
15 Florida Ave. NW
7 p.m. – 3 a.m.This outdoor lot will house graffiti art, musical performances, and art both static and performance-based. The space will also feature fiery hula routines and a bevy of food trucks.
“Green Lot” at Florida and Q St. NW
7 p.m. – 3 a.m.You guessed it: More DJs, alongside visual-arts performances and projected video art, like Amy Cannestra’s “Loss, Liberation, or Objectification.”
“Fairy Garden” at 1518 North Capitol St. NW
7 p.m. – 3 a.m.
This space will include a commissioned graffiti mural by Seb Reani, body art, a sculpture and light installation, and more video art.
