The Urban Forest Project

Call for Artists: Participate in the Urban Forest Project

This spring, The Urban Forest Project will plant 100 street banners by local designers and students in downtown Washington, DC. Each banner will use the form of, or metaphor for a tree, to make a powerful visual statement about the environment. This project is being brought to Washington, DC as a platform to engage the public in the District's environmental efforts.

The banners will be hung on light poles in downtown Washington, DC during the spring of 2010 in celebration of Arbor and Earth Days. They will then be recycled into unique one-of-a-kind totebags designed exclusively for the project. Proceeds from the sales of the totebags will go to nonprofit environmental efforts that help make Washington, DC a clean, green and sustainable city.

This project, conceived by Worldstudio, is being presented in Washington, DC in collaboration with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH), AIGA DC and Corcoran College of Art and Design.

the James Renwick Alliance

Originally uploaded by Scenic Artisan
I recently joined the James Renwick Alliance and went to my first meeting last night.

Like a lot of solid arts organizations they seem to be lacking in a younger membership base. I've found the same thing with the Washington Sculptors Group, of which i am a board member.

Anyway, we got a tour from their awesome curator Nicholas Bell and a great talk about a new glass sculpture they are acquiring.

I will also be participating in their James Renwick Alliance Day, a one day sale of artwork from the members.

Wearing the button throughout the year gets you discounts are various restaurants, shops and theaters. These buttons are available for sale at the Fringe Box Office at 601 New York Avenue, NW.

Performances are at a venue called "The Mount" -- the Mount Vernon United Methodist Church at 900 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington DC 20001
The church is located at the corners of 9th Street, Massachusetts Avenue and K Street, NW, and is 3 blocks north of Gallery Place Metro. There is street parking, and the old convention center parking lot is a block away.

In creating my pieces i use common and slightly nostalgic items to tell a story of transformation and growth based on my interpretations of religions, spirituality, and myths.The ethereal quality of glass set within the earthly and corporeal concrete is the metaphor our our yearning and questing souls confined in these earthly bodies.

Plus, they're like wicked cool and i'm really happy with them!

DC Public Art

Artistic Bike Rack Dedication

Mayor Fenty and Councilmember Wells to Join DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the District Department of Transportation for

Bike Rack Dedication

The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities in collaboration with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Well's will mark the completion of twenty-eight artistically designed bike racks by six local artists.

The artists whose designs were selected are Matt Barinholtz, Karin Edgett, William Gordon, Carolina Mayorga, Melinda Merinsky and Joe Sutliff. All six bike rack designs will be displayed at the dedication event.

The DC Creates Public Art Artistic Bike Rack proposal invited local artists to enhance the city’s standard bike racks and create unique designs that could be placed in locations city-wide. Artists were encouraged to incorporate their interpretation of the “DC experience” into their artwork as well as consider particular locations for the placement of the work. The intent of the project is to encourage more people to use bicycles and increase the number of bike racks throughout the city that are both functional and artistic.

For more information contact Deirdre Ehlen at or 202-724-5613.
