In partnership with Albus Cavus, an arts group that transforms communities through public art, Art @ Work will use graffiti-style mural art to bring Washington DC residents together in beautifying their neighborhoods.
According to the District of Columbia Department of Employment Services, the current unemployment rate is 11%. Unemployment breaks families and communities as individuals fall into despair, depression, and isolation. While we are not labor experts or economists, what we can offer is a means to weather this storm as a community and to grow together.
- Three on-site, mural workshops facilitated by Albus Cavus' team of graffiti-style mural artists will transform the Gallery into a working studio. Visitors of all artistic backgrounds, adults and kids (ages 12 and up) are invited to work with Albus Cavus to create a public art piece incorporating their unique voices and perspectives, which will eventually be installed in a local neighborhood as part of Albus Cavus' Open Walls project.
- Along with the community mural, Art @ Work will feature over 40 local, graffiti-style artists who routinely work with Albus Cavus to transform and beautify DC’s neighborhoods, including Ben Tolman, Kelly Towles, Aniekan Udofia, Decoy, Che, and Jazirock.
