Since 2016, Tenleytown Main Street has joined Main Street neighborhoods across the city in hosting Art All Night: Made in DC, offering a platform for the diverse artistic talents of those who live and work in the District. Local businesses, community institutions, and public spaces transform into pop-up galleries and performance stages for an evening celebrating the visual and performing arts. And the best part? It’s all FREE!
In 2017, nearly 11,000 visitors in Tenleytown enjoyed exhibits, performances, and interactive art experiences from more than 70 artists and ensembles. Click here for the 2017 Art All Night Tenleytown Event Guide, with the full schedule of events.
Art installations include photography, paintings, drawings, sculpture, jewelry, textiles, mixed-media, and more. Attendees are also able to enjoy live music, dance, theater, and martial arts. Interactive art experiences allow visitors to let loose their own creativity, including a flash mob, dance classes, arts and craft programs, and henna art. The annual festival is family-friendly and offers events for art lovers of all ages and backgrounds.
Art All Night is presented by the Department of Small and Local Business Development in partnership with Destination Congress Heights, Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets, H Street Main Street, North Capitol Street Main Street, Shaw Main Streets, and Tenleytown Main Street, with support from the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities.
