The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities presents Art Unplugged, a new summer performance series that showcases the talent of local artists at locations throughout the four quadrants of Washington, DC. The series spans from June 15, 2009 through August 14, 2009 and is hosted by 32-year-old Washington native W. Ellington Felton.
District of Columbia based performing artists–actors, singers, dancers, visual artists, musicians and poets are provided with a platform to showcase their talents in while audiences have the opportunity to experience quality arts programming in nontraditional spaces.
“We are thrilled to launch this new performance series,” said Gloria Nauden, Executive Director of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. “The artists participating reflect the diverse artistic expression present within the District. Residents and visitors of DC will experience the rich culture that our city has to offer.”
