Art Night 2019

__________

Every fall, Hickok Cole partners with Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) to host Art Night – an annual exhibit and fundraiser that transforms our Georgetown office into a four-floor art gallery. Now in its 19th year, Art Night has raised over $1,000,000 in support of WPA’s mission and the local arts community.

Art Night not only helps to further WPA’s mission, it also brings artists, collectors and the DC real estate community together in a unique celebration of art. Patrons can now show their support in THREE ways: attending Art Night, (new this year) through direct donation to WPA and, more importantly, BUYING ART. Each sale benefits both WPA and the artists directly, with all proceeds shared equally between the two. This year’s collection features over 200 works at a variety of price points – bringing pieces that are compelling and affordable for experienced and aspiring collectors alike.

Washington Project for the Arts is a not-for-profit visual arts organization that supports artist-driven projects, advocacy, and dialogue so that artists can live, work, and flourish.
