Visual Arts

CulturalDC operates Flashpoint Gallery and produces public art interventions throughout DC. We nurture talented emerging and mid-career artists by providing opportunities for peer learning and mentorship. We also present panel discussions, critiques and artist talks, often in partnership with local arts organizations and museums, which encourage a lively dialogue between artists and patrons.


Flashpoint Gallery exhibits innovative and experimental contemporary art. We present exceptional local and international artists and curators who are creating exciting new work and exploring new ideas.

Public art

CulturalDC’s public art program enriches the urban landscape with art interventions in the public realm. We partner with public agencies, real estate developers, property owners and artists to create place-making artworks that enhance the community.
