Reminder: Capitol Hill Arts District launch

Cap_Hill__Arts__District-logo3… 2… 1… liftoff. It’s not quite as exciting as landing on the Comet a comet, but city officials, artists, and the people who love them will be at Hugo House Saturday to celebrate. Saturday marks the launch of the new Capitol Hill Arts and Cultural District, a campaign to promote the arts, artists, and art venues in the neighborhood. CHS wrote here about the program and its long road to existence. On Saturday, you can join the party and head out to open houses around the area:

  1. Once it’s a “Arts District”, you know it’s a dead horse. Everyone vacate to the surrounding neighborhoods and make something new, please.
