DOWN THE STREET: RHODE ISLAND AVE.
April 15 - August 19, 2023
"Down the Street: Rhode Island Ave." is a collaborative, site-specific installation featuring large-scale drawings and paintings by Art Enables artists and visiting artist Amanda Burnham. Depictions of Rhode Island Ave. NE landmarks, storefronts, and quirks are collaged to create an immersive, mash-up impression of our neighborhood that spills off the gallery walls. Buildings, windows, signs, trees, and potted flowers rendered in black paint and marker are cut, taped, folded, and reassembled. The resulting construction offers stage scenery for a mental impression of our beloved DC corridor.
Gallery hours: Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. & Saturday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
