Art Exhibition

The ReCREATE: H2art exhibition will celebrate the one-year anniversary of the opening Center for Green Urbanism’s Tubman-Mahan Art Gallery in Washington, DC. The Gallery is part of the Center’s eco-friendly business incubator facility providing office space for small to mid-sized businesses and start-ups. The Center and Gallery is located in Ward 7 of northeast Washington, DC on the edge of Fort Mahan Park, a national park site and gateway to the Fort Circle Park Trail.

 

This year’s theme is: WATER. Water plays such an important role in our lives, encompassing social, economic, cultural, and environmental issues. Some ideas to think about are: How does water play a role in your life individually and on a global scale?  How would you recreate your world to make it better? What would you change? How does your art express the vision of ReCreate and theme of water?
