Event takes place Saturday August 7 from 2-6PM


Have you wondered where those “Give Me a Vote” hands have been coming from?  They are made by the artists and students of Albus Cavus, a remarkable organization that has created many of the murals seen around DC and more recently, painted the outside of the Temporium.

This Saturday, the public is invited to the Freezer, a working studio space owned by the Fridge’s Alex Gold where many of the hands have been made.

For those of you who have been brave enough to mingle with the hoards of tourists in the Union Station food court this summer, Albus Cavus also decorated the plywood outside a couple of empty food stalls there.

The tour is ultimately a fundraiser to sustain the phenomenal work of an organization that brings a lot of joy and beauty to our East City communities.  During the open house, visitors will get a taste of future projects including murals that will be installed on 8th Street SE and Pennsylvania avenue SE.  In addition the following  events have been scheduled: an art auction, live musical performances and a raffle.  Refreshments will be served.
If you can not make the event but would like to help donate funds to Albus Cavus, please visit their donations page.
The Freezer is located between Archibald walk and F ST Terrace SE. These alleys are located between 6th and 7th ST SE to the East + west and the 600 block of E and G to the north + south.    Click here for a map.
