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 autochthonous 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 eight 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.
