We began East City Art on January 4, 2010 to present the visual arts of Washington, DC and the surrounding region in its rawest and most autochtonous forms, challenging the widely-held notion sustained by local and national media that art in the Nation’s Capital derives either from the large institutions on the Mall or from the Connecticut-Wisconsin Avenue NW corridors of wealth and privilege.
In the past five years, we have successfully dispelled these myths and changed the conversation by presenting a more plural, empirically-based narrative of DC’s rich visual arts culture which, unlike most cities in the US, is one that is artist-driven rather than collector-driven.
As we enter the next five years of coverage of the DC art world, we watch with uncertainty as DC continues to change rapidly, for better or for worse. Skyrocketing real estate values and unrestrained development threaten to eradicate much of the city’s native culture and permanently displace local artists who reside within the city limits.
Event Publication Guidelines
Thank you for considering East City Art to promote your event.
We publish a print quarterly (January, April, June & September) with a circulation of 42K copies. We also publish articles and notices online daily including a weekly arts round-up column and an e-newsletter.
NOTE: WE ONLY COVER THE VISUAL ARTS
We NEVER cover music, theater, food or other non-related visual art events unless they have (you guessed it!) a strong visual arts component.
NOTE: Postings are maintained as a courtesy to the requester. East City Art Media LLC is under no obligation to post any art opening, class or other event.

Note—we will NOT publish information about a ticketed event which costs over $10 unless it is accompanied by ad buy or a media partnership with East City Art. If a prior arrangement is made, the post will then be listed as *SPONSORED* both online and in our newsletter (if applicable). Contact editor [at] eastcityart.com for more information.
However, we will continue to publish information on workshops and classes from organizations who offer tuition assistance, scholarships or low-cost programs.
