25 Years and Looking Forward


Wrapping up DCAC's year-long celebration of its 25 year anniversary this panel examined the changes in the Washington D.C. arts scene over that same period.

Topics of the discussion included:

The artistic environment: funding, galleries, collectors, opportunities

Art making itself: technological advances, styles, ideas, prolificacy

The artistic community how artists interact, connectivity through technology, collectives, social interaction

 

Participants:

George Hemphill, Hemphill Fine Arts

Michael O’Sullivan, Critic for the Washington Post

E. Ethelbert Miller, Poet, founder of the Humanities Council of Washington DC

Margaret Boozer, Artist, founder of Red Dirt Studios

Lou Stovall, Artist, director of Workshop, Inc.

Moderator:

James Mahoney: Critic, artist, writer and Professor at University of Maryland, Baltimore


DCAC's history spans protests at the Corcoran over the Mapplethorpe exhibition in 1989, to its current exhibition showcasing the work of four artists all born after DCAC came into existence. The panelists bring with them their own experiences and history woven through that same time period and before; giving a unique perspective on the evolution of arts in our community and the artist's role within it.


This event is a part of DCAC's contribution to #GivingTuesday admission to the event is "pay what you will". In addition there will be Happy Hour starting at 6:30 and a silent auction of art from some of our previous exhibitions and items from our storage vault. In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, DCAC is encouraging renewing members to make their annual contribution at this event as well as individuals who wish to mark the occasion of DCAC's 25 years of service to our arts community with a contribution.
