Panel Discussion and Community Forum featuring Artists and Curators involved in the Exhibitions "32 Years of OPTIONS: Three decades Celebrating Emerging and Under-Recognized Artists"
Wednesday, May 22nd

Washington Project for the Arts celebrates 32 years of its OPTIONS biennial (on view now) with a panel discussion and community forum featuring artists and curators involved in the exhibition throughout its history.

A consistent feature of DC’s local arts landscape since 1981, OPTIONS highlights work by emerging and unrepresented artists from DC, Maryland, and Virginia. The list of artists and curators who have been involved with OPTIONS over the years reads like a who’s who of the DC arts scene, reflecting the important role the exhibition has played in the development of the local arts community over the last three decades.

The panel will be moderated by Don Russell (Executive Director, Provisions Library) and Angela Adams (Public Art Administrator, Arlington Cultural Affairs), the co-curators of OPTIONS 1993, and will feature artists: Cynthia Connolly (OPTIONS 1997), Katherine Mann (OPTIONS 2011), Rogelio Maxwell (OPTIONS 1984), and Jeff Spaulding (OPTIONS 1981) and other OPTIONS alumni.

Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Friday, 1:00pm - 7:00pm; Saturday-Sunday, 12:00pm - 5:00pm
