This spring we blogged about Anacostia being  the center of the DC art world during the April 18th Anacostia Art Walk.  Now a mystery announcement is claiming that “the biggest thing to happen in Anacostia since The Big Chair” will be publicly revealed Friday September 10 underneath the Big Chair itself.

Nikki Peele, owner of reSPIN Public Relations, the River East Public Relations firm that is coordinating the big reveal had this to say, “The response to the teaser ads has been off the chart. People really want to know about this event in Historic Anacostia.  Word-of- mouth has been amazing; the level of response unquestionably illustrates the ever-increasing awareness of the Anacostia neighborhood. With the continued revitalization of the Anacostia Business District, the ongoing HGTV filming, and the recent release of the Good Hope: Anacostia video (produced by the DC Arts Commission), Anacostia is fast becoming the DC neighborhood to watch.”

The event will launch at the Big Chair landmark in Historic Anacostia from 5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. with a special “preview event” scheduled at 4:00pm at The Gallery at Vivid Solutions  located at 2208 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE.
