Monumental Outdoor Video Projection to Run Concurrently with the Southwest Fireworks Festival.
(Washington, DC) — The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) and FotoDC is proud to present, Beyond the Blossoms, a monumental outdoor video projection. Beyond the Blossomswill project photographs of the Districts time honored Cherry Blossoms and depictions of life beyond the monumental core, highlighting everyday citizens, neighborhoods and the ever changing landscape of our city.
Photographs have been selected from DCCAH’s Art Bank Collection and from FotoDC’s first annual Cherry Blossom Photography Contest. Art Bank is a growing collection of three dimensional artworks owned by DCCAH and loaned to other District Government agencies for display in public areas of government buildings. A segment of the collection is devoted to works that visually document the District of Columbia, highlighting the beauty and charm of our residents, neighborhoods, parks, avenues, and local landmarks. This collection helps preserve the city’s past and is an important legacy for future generations. Art Bank provides an opportunity for local artists to have their artwork acquired and exhibited in public spaces as part of DCCAH’s continued commitment to support our vibrant artistic community. The combination of the Cherry Blossom and Art Bank images, we hope will bring awareness of District life beyond the blossoms.
