We Are All Connected: Large-Scale Public Art 2-Dimensional Playscape

October 9 @ 10:45 am - 4:00 pm

Created live by Mo Willems and 240 Members of the Local Community!
As part of the Kennedy Center’s 50th Anniversary season celebration, Education Artist-in-Residence Mo Willems will work with local community members to create a giant mural on the bluestone floor of the REACH Plaza! This exciting public art piece is inspired by Mo’s abstract works of dots and lines. A huge graphic representation of how we’re all connected in unexpected ways, the playscape will be created throughout the day on Saturday, October 9 and remain installed until the winter.
Hosted by Mo and Helen Hayes Award-winner Erika Rose, the day of art making will be created by your neighbors who are passionate about and engaged with ART, FOOD, JUSTICE, LEARNING, MEDICINE and WELLNESS. The REACH grounds will be filled art making, live music, family-friendly activities, the return of the giant inflatable Pigeon, and more! Drop by for any portion of this FREE day of events to connect with and cheer on your local community, or stay for the entire creative process and be one of the first to dance and move on the completed artwork!
Ongoing activities, music, and creation occur between 10:45 a.m. and 4 p.m. Rain date is October 16.
