Mayor Vincent C. Gray along with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new District Government-owned art gallery at 200 I (Eye) Street, SE in the new Canal Park development.
The Gallery at 200 I Street is the first and only District-owned interior space created solely for the exhibition of fine art. Located within the former Washington Star printing plant, this civic space is part of the renovated industrial facility housing new headquarters for several District agencies. The gallery features three tiers of wall space, soaring ceilings, and a plinth for site specific sculptural installation. A rotation of fine art exhibits will be curated by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH), with opportunities provided throughout the year for artists and organizations to submit exhibition proposals. All exhibits will be open to public view each day during normal business hours.
