This August, Art Soiree, Nick’s Riverside Grill, Tony & Joe’s Restaurant, Roche Salon, MRP Realty at Washington Harbour, and a group of talented local artists use the magic of art to transform the heart of Georgetown into an enchanted wonderland of Midsummer Night’s Dream. Locals and guests of town are invited to celebrate the summer and immerse into a fantastic, fairy-laden setting of color, art, music and performance Sunday, August 12, at Washington Harbour, 3050 K Street NW, Washington DC 20007.
This will be a follow up show to the Art Metamoprhosis Gala that took place June 14, 2012, at the Washington Harbour attracting over 3,500 people including DC Mayor Vincent C. Gray. This time, the Harbour complex will highlight in all its beauty with the Bellagio-style dancing fountain in action and painted canvases coming to life. Thirty different model creations painted by some of the best local artists, with whimsical hair pieces created by Roche Salon, will walk in a fantasy runway show. The night will include a musical program featuring live performance by DJ FoTiFo accompanied by live cello, saxophone and trumpet improvisations and graphic video installations of Riki Kim. The highlight of the evening will be live performance by DC’s premier physical theater–SYNETIC THEATER, with pieces from the upcoming season’s program and favorites from the past.
