Art Enables (7pm to 10pm)

Forget everything you knew about glitter- that it is gaudy, tacky and distasteful.  At Art Enables off-Rhode gallery’s Glitterbomb, collector Paul Yandura challenges these notions. This exhibition features 50 pieces of outsider art from Yandura’s personal collection which are (you guessed it) glitterbombed!  For more information, click here.

 

Art Enables is located at 2204 Rhode Island Avenue, NE
