This temporary exhibition showcases memorable events hosted in Dupont Circle National Park by Dupont Festival, a nonprofit that presents year-round arts & cultural programming. Situated a block north of the Heurich House, the park is a public gathering place, providing Washingtonians and tourists alike with an outdoor event space in the middle of the city. The paintings depicted by artist in residence from Art Enables, a DC-based Art Gallery and Vocational Arts program dedicated to creating opportunities for artists with disabilities, showcase an array of visual interpretations of the historic park. Highlights from the exhibition include two paintings of Dupont Festival’s annual Groundhog Day festival, a scene from the 2014 World Cup soccer festival hosted in conjunction with the Embassy of Germany, a circus event held in conjunction with the Embassy of Sweden, a pop-up performance by The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, Chess in the Circle held in conjunction with the US Chess Center, and Dupont Festival’s annual Cinema in the Circle movie screening. Scenes from Dupont Festival was funded through a DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities grant. This exhibition will be on display for the foreseeable future.
Viewing the exhibit is free and available during all public programs and tours.
