Each autumn Hickok Cole Architects joins the Washington Project for the Arts to sponsor Art Night. Held at our offices in Georgetown, local metro-area artists and our staff are invited to show their best work. We invite the arts community, our clients, friends, and families to view the hundreds of pieces and enjoy an evening dedicated to bringing together architecture and the arts. We thank our guests and the 2016 Art Angels for their support and patronage. Now in its 16th year, Art Night has raised over $800,000 in support of the local arts community.
Art Night has become one of the preeminent art events in the region. This year, more than 100 artists will showcase their work and everything is for sale. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of artwork will be shared equally among the artists and Washington Project for the Arts.
Your support of Art Night helps WPA further its mission to promote and present experimental exhibitions, programs and performances that benefit local artists and residents.
