Help Clean Up the Canal Saturday, March 26

The Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) is  looking for volunteers to help with the C&O Canal Clean Up Project! The National Park Service has temporarily drained the canal, providing the perfect opportunity to clean trash from the canal bed.

They are calling for volunteers to help this Saturday, March 26, with Canal Clean Up. Tasks will include picking up trash and debris from the canal bed, and possibly painting. We will provide all necessary equipment, but come prepared to get dirty! There is still some water in the canal and the bed is very muddy so rain boots are a good idea.  

For more information on Canal Clean Up or to RSVP please contact Sherman Gardner at the Georgetown BID at or 202.298.9222 ext 206.

Helen Frederick Environmental Art at The Phillips Collection

March 14, 2016

Distinguished DC Artist Helen Frederick's "Intersections: Acts of Silence" exhibit runs through May 1, 2016 at The Phillips Colleciton.

Addressing the endangerment and degradation of the environment, her work aligns with the philosophical approach to nature found in the work of Morris Graves (American, 1910–2001), who developed a spiritual bond with the landscape and culture of the Pacific Northwest. Her pulp prints and paintings are surrounded by projected images of the forest, light-based sculptures, and sound pieces, creating an immersive, multisensory, and interactive space. Juxtaposed with some of the Phillips’s most celebrated Graves works, they reinforce an introspective experience of art while bringing awareness of human responsibility toward the natural environment.

Intersections is a series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions. Whether engaging with the permanent collection or diverse spaces in the museum, the projects suggest new relationships with their own surprises.

Many of the projects also riff on the nontraditional nature of the museum's galleries, sometimes activating spaces that are not typical exhibition areas with art produced specifically for those locations.

The Phillips Collection is located 1600 21st Street NW
