tonight! Art All Night at Florida & North Capitol Street - from 7 pm to 3 am -- STOP BY!

Okay, Bloomingdale, here is what you are doing this evening.

Participating in tonight's Art All Night DC event.  One of five locations is right here.  There are three lots near Florida and North Capitol Street where all the action is.

From the Washington Post:

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.
