Event: Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21 from 8am to 6pm

White Turf Painting Actions is a series of performative events undertaken by Patrick McDonough at numerous sites in the DC metro region. These actions find McDonough painting large swaths of grass with white turf paint (commonly used for sports fields), until a predetermined time has elapsed or an agreed upon area has been entirely filled.

From Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21, McDonough will perform a White Turf Painting Action on the grassy lot between W & V St. on Shannon Pl. SE  for his second performance of the series. He will be painting the lot from 8am to 6pm those three days. This installment is presented in collaboration with ARCH Development Corporation.

He executed the first during the SUPERNOVA Performance Art Festival June 8-9 in Rosslyn, VA.

McDonough will give an artist’s talk and conversation on Wednesday, July 31 at Honfleur Gallery from 6:30-8pm. Learn more about the project here: http://lumen8anacostia.com/schedule/lumen8tech-july29-august-3/
