The Adams Morgan Partnership BID and DC Arts Center Bring Art to the Neighborhood April 10 – May 6, 2022
WASHINGTON, DC, MARCH 30, 2022 — The incredibly popular AdMo Art Walk will make its return to the Adams Morgan Neighborhood. The Adams Morgan Partnership BID and the DC Arts Center are partnering to bring back a free and interactive way to experience local artists’ latest works.
11 local businesses will display art from a number of local artists. As we shake off the doldrums of winter, the AdMo Art Walk provides the perfect family-friendly opportunity to get out and about and enjoy the sights and sounds of one of DC’s most bustling neighborhoods while taking in the latest creations of local artists.
All are encouraged to stroll through Adams Morgan and admire an awe-inspiring selection of artworks displayed in local business storefronts. The artists represented in the show reflect the diversity of DC not only in personal identity, but also showcases artists that are self-taught and those institutionally trained. The self-guided walking tour will open Sunday, April 10 and will run through Friday, May 6.
New this year, the AdMo art walk will be themed to bring cohesion to the temporary collection. This year GROWTH will be the theme and will anchor the entire exhibit: from an expansion in the number of businesses participating, to new artists showcasing their work, and even the theme in the artworks displayed will reflect the new Spring season.

About District of Columbia Arts Center (DCAC)
With nearly two dozen art openings and hundreds of performances each year, the DC Arts Center (DCAC) is the only institution solely dedicated to fostering underrepresented artists in the greater Washington, D.C., area. Founded in 1989 as an accessible alternative arts center in response to eroding support for local artists, DCAC has since become a hub of creativity in the visual and performing arts, receiving local, national, and international attention. Artists of all types, including poets, painters, actors, storytellers, sculptors, and performance artists, have been drawn to DCAC from as close as around the corner to as far as from other continents. Located in Washington, DC’s vibrant Adams Morgan neighborhood, DCAC operates a small arts facility that includes two art galleries, a 42-seat black box theater, and office space.
