The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the DC Office of Planning announce Playable Art DC, a creative play and placemaking project designed to create interactive works of art that are bold, exciting and playful, inspire imagination, build social skills, and are enjoyed by youth and adults.
Playable Art DC installation sites:
Kennedy Street (Ward 4)
Anacostia Library (Ward 8)
Greenway Neighborhood (Ward 7)
