“We’re exploring an exciting array of programming,” said Tom Meyer, President of Clyde’s Restaurant Group. “For music lovers on both sides of the mic, The Soundry will present top talent in an intimate, comfortable setting. The music venue will play an integral role in the redefinition of Downtown Columbia as a unique and dynamic urban center.”   


Continuing Clyde’s tradition of using high-quality, fresh ingredients sourced locally and sustainably whenever possible, the chef team is busy crafting a “Street Food” menu, which will combine vibrant flavors with presentations that are easy to enjoy while sitting, or standing and grooving through a show. 


Clyde’s Restaurant Group’s decision to open a live music venue in Downtown Columbia is the latest redevelopment of the 391-acre center of Columbia by The Howard Hughes Corporation. When completed, the Downtown Columbia revitalization will include 14 million square feet of mixed-use development comprised of 4.3 million square feet of commercial office space, 1.25 million square feet of street retail, 6,244 residential units, and 640 hotel rooms.

'To Future Women' at The Phillips Collection

January 17, 2018

From January 21 to February 14, The Phillips Collection is hosting To Future Women, an interactive artwork that marks the anniversary of the Women’s March through the platform of art.


Created by artist Georgia Saxelby, the project invites participants throughout America and beyond to write a letter to women in 20 years. Part art and part history, these letters will be archived for 20 years by The Phillips Collection and re-exhibited on January 21, 2037, historicizing one of the largest protests in American history while creating a time capsule for the next generation of women.


The project will launch at The Phillips Collection and will travel to different cultural institutions and public spaces in Washington, DC, over the following six months. 


Participants who cannot visit the museum may mail letters to:
