Politics and Art

Wednesday, March 16th, from 5:30-8:30pm









On Wednesday, March 16, 2016, from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. leading performing arts presenter, Washington Performing Arts in partnership with D.C. Councilmember David Grosso (I-At Large) will host POLITICS & ART: A Jam Session at the Wilson Building. This second annual event co-hosted by Washington Performing Arts and Councilmember Grosso under the auspices of Washington Performing Arts’ Mars Urban Arts Initiative allows the worlds of local politics and arts to intersect through various presentations of local artists and organizations.

POLITICS & ART is an annual celebration and jam session showcasing local artists from the music, dance, poetry and visual arts communities and celebrating Washington’s rich artistic legacy and current culture. The event provides artists from different genres and backgrounds with an opportunity to network and fortify the culture of D.C. It also serves as an opportunity for government officials to share their own artistic talents and passion for the arts.

Washington, D.C., is a city filled with talented artists from across the nation and the world. These artists come to the city with different perspectives, sounds, and ideologies and use their talents to share and communicate their identities and ideas. Be they amateur or professional, D.C. is home to artists who spend their lifetimes crafting and perfecting their work. D.C. has nurtured and groomed legendary musicians who have influenced the culture of the nation and its politicians since its inception.  From the patriotic sounds of John Phillip Sousa to the thought-provoking, political lyrics of Marvin Gaye, Washington’s musical identity and culture run deep.
