WASHINGTON DC — Promoting contemporary art by supporting local artists, staging exhibitions and exploring issues and ideas through public dialogue, the Washington Project for the Arts is a major voice for creative arts in the nation’s capital.
The project’s efforts to ensure the visibility and success of its artists are evidenced at the (e)merge art fair this weekend, where Rooms 224 and 225 at the Capitol Skyline Hotel feature the work of artist members. (WPA’s administrative offices are housed at the hotel, too.)
An exhibition of small works by dozens of members offers visitors the opportunity to own an original piece by a local artists at an affordable price, ranging from approximately $75 to $350.
The (e)merge art fair runs from Oct. 3-6, 2013.
