“This is great! It totally doesn’t feel like D.C.!,” seemed to be the reoccurring sentiment as I meandered through the oh-so-young-and-hip crowd at the Hirshhorn after Hours. But this is Washington and what this event routinely proves – besides the fact that it’s okay to have a DJ and light show in an art museum – is that the Washington arts scene is thrusting itself forth, straight into the iCals of the hip, young and fresh faced.
