We have been following Arts Park, a project by Dance Place to turn the currently empty Kearny Street Alley between their building and the Brookland Artspace Lofts (3305 and 3225 8th Street, NE) into an artistic, playable green space. On Thursday March 31st from 4:00 – 5:30 pm. there will be a groundbreaking event for the park and the community is invited to attend. You can RSVP for the ground breaking by emailing artspark(at)danceplace(dot)org or call 202.269.1600.
Closely modeled off of Dance Place’s super popular Art on 8th Programs, the Park will host interactive programming for all ages, including games, music concerts, movie nights, community gardens, dance presentations, workshops and more. The Grand Opening of the park is expected to be in Fall of 2016.
