CulturalDC’s Mobile Art Gallery


CulturalDC brings vibrant visual arts to the front steps of DC neighborhoods 

CulturalDC continues its strong history of presenting cutting-edge artwork and emerging artists through a Mobile Art Gallery. By outfitting a portable shipping container as a multi-functional space for art CulturalDC ensures that communities experience and engage in groundbreaking works. DC's first Mobile Art Gallery will move across the District for the 2017-2018 season, with a new exhibit and free public programming in every neighborhood it visits.

Community Engagement

While many recognized arts centers are located Downtown, CulturalDC is committed to delivering high-quality art directly to neighborhoods in the nation’s capital. The Mobile Art Gallery is building bridges of access to arts and culture for all. In each new location, CulturalDC works with key stakeholders like BID's, ANC's, community organizations, schools, Main Streets, artists, and more to provide an immersive experience. 

We throw a family-friendly Kick-Off Party featuring community performers, program free artist-led workshops, and work with the hosting organization to craft other neighborhood-specific events.
