We went to Cultural Tourism DC's ACTIVATED! Art4All DC Launch Party at CityCenter Friday. The three-week festival will have performances, workshops, gallery openings, neighborhood festivals, and open houses. We snapped rising star and singer-songwriter Marshall Sims, right, with his band’s keyboardist Nathaniel Slight and drummer Cedric Edmon with Cultural Tourism DC’s Helen Gineris.
Guests walk through The Gateway at CityCenter, a 25-foot high, 50-foot wide, high-res, digital art feature by media artist David Niles. Here, performance painter Christine Walters.
Anthro21’s John Coleman III and Veolia’s Kent Nelson are with Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House’s Dawn Nelson, which provided snacks along with CityCenter’s other new restaurant, Daniel Boulud’s DBGB.
Emcee and spoken word artist Nina Brewton, Cultural Tourism DC’s Cheryl Crowell, and Goodman & Sons Jewelers’ Raphael Brewton.
