Georgetown GLOW Returns April 2 for Six-Month Outdoor Public Art Series

By Editorial Team on February 23, 2021

A new season of light is coming to Georgetown with the return of GLOW. The free outdoor public art experience will be presented by the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) as an extended two-part series this Spring (April 2 – June 27) and Summer (July 2 – September 26), highlighting a majority of DC artists.

Five artworks will be exhibited throughout Georgetown’s commercial district during Spring GLOW. Following, Summer GLOW will feature three artworks that will transform Georgetown’s public alleys. All GLOW installations will be viewable by day, and even brighter by night.

Traditionally a popular holiday celebration, the 7th edition of GLOW has shifted to 2021 to provide visitors with a safer and more comfortable experience. Each artwork location will allow for social distancing, and masks will be required.
