A Look Into the Evening…

Among DC’s most passionate art optimists will be special guest and D.C. native Chris Martin. Martin is a brilliant and flourishing artist whose work is sure to catch your eye. Reminiscing on music, literature, and the human relationship to the natural world, Martin creates artwork which incorporates both the abstract and the physical world. In addition to an exhibition and public intervention, three of Martin’s 40-foot-high paintings will be showcased, creating an anything-but-average setting for this exciting evening.
