Blended brings together the worlds of street art and graphic design in a collision of music, art, and performance at a soon-to-be-demolished warehouse 2030 8th Street NW in the U Street Corridor. Encompassing the work of over 60 highly skilled artists, many of whom call East City home, this show promises to be one of the most significant art events in DC this year. In addition to the art, area DJs will move the dance floor and Urban Artistry will showcase urban dance culture. Visitors can dance, have a great time and meet the artists at this benefit for Albus Cavus’s community and youth workshop efforts.
