Open Studios
May 10 & 11 from noon to 6 pm
52 O Street NW

52 O Street is celebrating the building’s centennial this year with its annual spring open studios.  The warehouse has housed many different enterprises over its long history but has remained a bustling artist community for the past 39 years.  Having been one of the longest continuously running artist studio buildings in Washington, DC it has become a cultural institution of sorts.  This year’s open studio will showcase the diverse richness of DC’s growing creative class.  Participating artists and creatives are as follows:

DC Glassworks

Spring Open House and Open Studios

Special for this event:

  • Watch studio artists create a “self-portrait” of DC GlassWorks–assembling components created Saturday by each artists into one sculpture
  • See if glass is hot enough to pop popcorn–and sample the results
  • Meet, and see the latest work of, 11 studio artists
  • As part of Saturday’s Gateway Arts District Open Studio Tour from 12:00 to 5:00 pm, hear live music, tour our gallery, visit resident artist studios or work with one of our instructors to make your own glass paperweight for a fee. And, as always, there will be beer, snacks and folks demonstrating glassblowing all day.
