Each autumn Hickok Cole joins the Washington Project for the Arts to sponsor Art Night. Held at our offices in Georgetown, local metro-area artists and our staff are invited to show their best work. We invite the arts community, our clients, friends, and families to view the hundreds of pieces and enjoy an evening dedicated to bringing together architecture and the arts. We thank our guests and the 2015 Art Angels for their support and patronage. Now in its 15th year, Art Night has raised over $700,000 in support of the local arts community.
Art Night 2015 Curator Deirdre Ehlen MacWilliams has selected compelling works by local contemporary artists working in a variety of media. Deirdre is a public art project manager for Arlington Public Art and an independent curator and producer for projects such as Georgetown GLOW, rotating sculpture for Golden Triangle Business Improvement District and Open Studios for Mid City Artists.
Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) is a not-for-profit visual arts organization that supports artists at all states of their careers and promotes contemporary art by presenting exhibitions, issues, and ideas that stimulate public dialogue on art and culture (wpadc.org). In 2015, WPA will move into new offices and a dedicated exhibition space, designed by Hickok Cole, at its new home in The JBG Companies’ Atlantic Plumbing Project.
