It’s all DC, all the time here at the Garment District, DC’s newest pop-up art space.
Also know as a Temporarium, the Garment District revels in worshiping at the altar of local talent. All the art prints on the wall are by DC artists, all the one-of-a-kind jewelry is hand-made by DC artisans, and all the music you hear overhead is by DC musicians.
Where are you? You are in one of three art spaces sponsored this year by grants from the city. Located in Shaw at the corner of 9th and Mass, the Garment District features “local fashion and design, unique art installations and offer workshops, sewing classes and special events.”
The space is only open for a month, so get there while you can. This is a way you can support the city in which you live and be cooler than everyone you know. Live music every Friday and Saturday for the next month is free. Screen printed tshirts have already started to sell out. I especially coveted the screen-printed, leather bound flasks. There won’t be any more of them any time soon since the artist broke her wrist.
