Art All Night Brings Late Night Arts to the H Street Corridor

Screen Shot 2015-09-22 at 8.45.25 AM

You do not want to miss this year's Art All Night events on H Street. Art All Night is this Saturday, September 26th, and we have several events in our area. District-wide Art All Night events run from 7pm to 3am. If there's no start time listed for an event, you can probably safely assume it starts at 7pm (but ask when you check in at the Atlas). This year you'll find events in the following neighborhoods: Congress Heights, Dupont Circle, H Street NE, North Capitol and Shaw. Below you'll find the event descriptions from the Art All Night website (I'm adding/editing text, and dropping in my own photos in spots).

FEATURED INSTALLATION: “AIRE-VISUAL CONCERT FOR NOMADS” 
722 H Street (Bank of America Building)
Aire is a cinematic, musical and poetic piece designed as a site-specific visual concert created and directed by Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video artist) and Javier Moreno (composition, double bass) in collaboration with Isabelle Duverger (animation and projection mapping), into an allegory of images traveling thought time and space and powerfully scored by an original musical suite for those seeking permanently, never having the feeling of forever. The multimedia show merges immersive video mapped projection design with performing arts by featuring video art and live visuals with an international concert ensemble.

Too bad about The Spot. Don't know about their other offerings, but their bacon, egg, and cheese was adequate and a block from where I live. Made Saturday mornings really easy
