PAST: ART: Closing Party for Dana Ellyn's "Meat-Free Week Collection" at 410 GooDBuddY near Shaw Metro on Florida Ave this FRI, March 1st from 6:00pm - 8:00pm, Free

Closing Party for Dana Ellyn's Meat-Free Week Collection at 410 GooDBuddY
Friday, March 1st
6:00pm - 8:00pm

In a series of paintings inspired by DC Meat-Free Week, local artist Dana Ellyn invites viewers to reconsider the every day. Pieces give a new meaning to ubiquitous phrases, lending a comically sinister meaning to "baby back ribs" and turning "pig in a blanket" on its head.  In addition to feasting their eyes on Ellyn's works, guests of the closing party will be treated to Georgetown Cupcakes' newly debuted vegan cupcakes, wines by Vegan Vine Wines, house-made salsas by Sticky Fingers, and sample tonics by Goûter. The first 50 attendees will also receive a complimentary tote bag, designed by OlsenHaus Pure Vegan, and filled with gifts including a voucher for $20 off a first ride with Uber!

Ellyn has also specially created a series of small paintings for the closing event. These pieces, which she has dubbed "small plates," highlight a more whimsical take on meat-free fare: dreamy cupcakes piled high with frosting tempt, while tiny animals eating and drinking amuse.

In addition, Ellyn is donating 15% of sales from the March 1 closing to benefit The Kindness Collective, a DC-based not-for-profit organization that works at the intersection of human and animal welfare. Dana is also a vegetarian.
