CHAW joins Eastern Market and the DC Public Library in celebrating Halloween on the Hill. Join CHAW for arts activities, music, trick-or-treating for art, and more–all taking place on 7th St. SE: at CHAW, the Southeast branch of the library, Eastern Market, and two Alphabet Animals sculptures.  Top it all off with donuts, cider, and a family-friendly spooky classical piano recital at 7:45pm back at CHAW.  It will be the best ART rush you’ve ever had on Halloween.

Event Schedule:

5:30pm-7:30pm (activities run continuously–start anywhere):

  • Trick-or-Treating for Art at CHAW, Public Library-SE Branch, Eastern Market, and the Alphabet Animal sculptures on 7th & G St. SE (Grasshopper) and 7th & South Carolina SE (Spider). Download your map here–get a stamp at each of the stations, and you could win a prize.
