Support our after-school art program at Perry Center. Sadly this year our funding was cut so severely that we were only able to open the art room on Fridays and on Family Nights, one night a month. The fact that these kids are losing out on access to supplies and art programming is tragic.
We are aiming to renew the program for the young artists by raising funds through an auction during Night at the Museum event planned for June 14th, 2013 from 5pm to 8pm in Courtyard Washington located at 1325 2nd Street NE, Washington, DC (NOMA Metro).
We appreciate the support of the following artists who have donated their art for the cause:
Alex Merritt, Aniekan Udofia, Astrotwitch, Beth Baldwin, Carlos Galloway, Chanel Compton, Chor Boogie, DAHM, Dan Gray, Dana Jeri Maier, Danielle Jennings Tanner, DECOY, DELVE, DEMER, Dennis Toy, Diabetik, Evan Roth, Eve Hennessa, Fire Studio, GAIA, Garth Fry, Helen Warren, HKS181, HUF, Imani Brown, Iwillnotart, Jay Hudson, John Grunwell, Joshua Cogan, KASSO, Kelly Towles, Kevin Hunt, Khadijah Wilson, KIER, Kristina Bilonick, LANK, LIGHT UP, Liz Stewart, Luis Peralta, Mark Jenkins, Mensa Ahdae Kondo, Michael Pinnix, Ms. Mensen, NEBSI, Peter Krsko, Prelli Anthony Williams, RAIN, REI XXI, Rosina Teri Memolo, STER, Superwaxx, TAXI GANG, Tokyo Thirteen, ULTRA, Veronika Kaderova, VICE VERSA, WHO?, Will Carroll, Yvette Mitchell
Special Performance by Da Originalz / Beat Ya Feet Kings:
Whether the children are getting ready for our next mural, painting pots for our peace garden, studying the next artist in our art history book or getting ready for our Night at the Museum art show: art is all around us. Thank you for participating in the show and for keeping art in these kids’ lives for another whole year!

We are excited to announce a summer-long workshop program hosted by DC Public Library. Albus Cavus is an international collective of artists and scientists who improve quality of urban life through arts and creativity. This goal is accomplished with community-based public art, participatory events, interactive environments and project-oriented education. “Beneath the Surface” workshops present innovative art techniques for exploring the world beneath the obvious and invisible to the bare eye.

Frank Asher, the owner of Old City Farm and Guild has a challenging task ahead of him – to convert a dead concrete plaza into a living garden full of plants, flowers, trees and animals. This Spring, the garden center moved to the new location at 925 Rhode Island Ave NW, DC and expanded tremendously. They will continue fulfill all gardening needs for the neighborhood and additionally, also start growing fresh produce for the local restaurants.
Albus Cavus has partnered with Frank and Old City Farm and Guild to curate all the paintable surfaces on the property and to exhibit sculptures in the wilderness. Jay Hudson, WHO?, Dan Gray, Jordan Sanders, HUF, DECOY and Chanel Compton and some of our young artists painted murals on the garden sheds during the opening day last weekend.
