Good afternoon,

As a Bloomingdale resident, I wanted to both invite and request that the Bloomingdale neighborhood blog post/share content with its network about a free art show I have organized for this Saturday, (Sept 1) from 7pm-9pm at La Pop, 1847 Columbia Road NW in Adams Morgan. 

The show will feature Essa Neima's paintings; Essa is from Syria but has lived in DC for the past eight or so years. He has an amazing story which you can learn about here

We have organized the show in advance of the free Syria Festival, which will take place this Sunday. Please join us in this celebration of Syrian culture; it is our chance to push back against the negative narratives against Syrians which stem from hate and ignorance. Attached for your reference is also the flier.
