North Capitol Main Street is a community-based nonprofit organization that works to promote, improve, and strengthen the North Capitol business district. NCMS values the arts and the rich array of artists who work, live, and spend time in North Capitol Main Street. In partnership with our business community, we intend to host periodic art shows, installations, and events.
Our next major arts festival is Art All Night on Saturday, September 23, 2017. We are seeking expressions of interest from local artists who would like to participate!
Art All Night is a citywide arts festival during which local businesses, community institutions, and public spaces transform into pop-up galleries and performance spaces for an evening of art in all its forms. Each year more than 5,000 attendees in North Capitol Main Street enjoys installations that include photography, paintings, sculpture, jewelry, mixed-media collages, and more. This year, NOMA Business Improvement District has partnered with us to extend our surface area of art activated locations even further. Art All Night also includes live music, dance, theatre, comedy, fashion and interactive art experiences.
