Join us to celebrate the work of students from 10 DCPS high school arts programs. Since April, students have been working with teachers and DC artists to develop 4-foot x 8-foot mural panels around the theme of ‘DC Youth Culture.’ The work will be installed on the Vermont Avenue side of Garnet Patterson for the next year.
The celebration will take place in the Garnet Patterson courtyard and will include a DCPS Battle of the Bands, food trucks and art-making workshops.

“Everyday DC,” a photography exhibition on view at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery from January 9, 2018, through January 31, 2018, presents a visual narrative of everyday life in Washington, D.C. through the eyes of more than 100 DC public middle school students from all four quadrants of the city. The exhibition is the culmination of a unit designed by the Pulitzer Center in collaboration with DC Public Schools (DCPS) and facilitated by over a dozen DCPS visual arts teachers.
“Everyday DC” was inspired by the Everyday Africa project, founded by Pulitzer Center grantees Peter DiCampo and Austin Merrill to re-direct focus toward a more accurate understanding of what the majority of Africans experience on a day-to-day basis: normal life. Like Everyday Africa, Everyday DC challenges students to consider how Washington D.C. is portrayed in the media, and how their lived experiences relate to those portrayals.
The “Everyday DC” project is funded in part by the D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information about the unit plan and exhibition, contact email@example.com
The project is also supported by the Pepco Edison Gallery, which generously donated the space for the exhibition.
Gallery opens to the public every Tuesday to Friday, January 9 through January 31, from Noon to 4 p.m. Free admission.
The Fundred Reserve Exhibition is on view through April.

The project aims to explore the questions, "What images come to mind when you think of Washington, D.C.? How does media representation of the District compare with the everyday experiences of youth in the District?"
