Art can be defined as the physical realization of an individual’s dream or vision. Through literature, the spoken word, sculpting, painting, performance, graffiti, composition, and photography, a dream can be actualized to share with the masses garnering solidarity, criticism, indifference, acclaim and insight.

Arguably, cinema is one of the only mediums that infuses the highest level of artistic integration. This medium of storytelling welcomes the collective input of writers, painters, actors, designers, composers, carpenters and photographers. “Art Behind the Art”, will celebrate the independent spirit of collective artists who dare dream together with hopes of sharing their vision with the world and each other. Captured through still photography and photo documentation, the seldom acknowledged foundation of intersecting art will be the focus of photography selected for exhibition at Blank Space SE. The exhibition is scheduled to run for 2 weeks, summer – 2011.

Exhibition Vision: “Art Behind the Art” will harness an enormous amount of energy from area filmmakers and is intended to celebrate the photographers of the film industry while also bringing together those that invest both artistically and financially in the great art and science of film.

About The Honfleur Social Arts Initiative or HSAI: In 2007 the Honfleur Gallery opened its doors to Historic Anacostia. This was the first main street art space to open in this section of Washington in over 40 years. Shorty after the opening of the gallery and under the umbrella of the ARCH Development Corporation, the gallery started a small initiative offering more than just fine arts visual experiences. The ARCH Social Arts Project (ASAP) was to include a wide variety of ancillary programming such as artist talks, poetry readings, artist residencies, arts workshops and concerts. ASAP was a response to a need for local residents and artists to have, and take part in artistic experiences otherwise unavailable to them in their immediate neighborhood. Over the years, and through the generous support from funders past and present, The ARCH Social Arts Project has thrived.
