Georgetown's Fashion's Night Out will feature a conspicuously public flash mob.
Though flash mobs are generally something planned behind the scenes, with only a few privy to the impending hilarity, the Georgetown Business Improvement District is putting out an open call for participants. Urban Artistry's Fashion Flash Mob has a YouTube video to show you the moves. You just have to show up at 7 p.m. sharp at the PNC Bank parking lot at 1201 Wisconsin Ave. on Thursday, Sept. 8. Participants are encouraged to RSVP on Facebook for the not-so-secret flash mob.
One Georgetown neighbor's walk took an interesting, nay fruity, turn recently.
What makes something art? The recent graffiti appearing on Georgetown signs and walls had neighbors seeking immediate action for its removal. Yet to some, graffiti is a form of street art. What about a bunch of fruit in an odd location? Decide for yourself in Montrose Park, just behind the playground area. Jim Ingram came across what he called an "anonymous winter sculpture" while walking his dog in Montrose Park. On a bowed branch of a tree sits about a dozen carefully placed vegetables and fruit. Ingram wrote in an email that the assortment of peppers, apples and eggplants were "real and fresh." It would seem there's an organic guerrilla sculptor in Georgetown.
