Capitol Hill Block Party announces new visual arts component

The Capitol Hill Block Party, which kicks off July 20, has announced a new visual arts component featuring commissioned work by 23 artists, including Allison Kudla, Brent Watanabe and Anne Blackburn.

Named the All-Brow Visual Arts exhibit, the show consists of indoor and outdoor pieces at various sites on the festival grounds and is curated by Laurie Kearney, founder of Capitol Hill’s Ghost Gallery.

Among the pieces featured are Kudla’s outdoor moss pattern, “Living Installation”‘; Blackburn’s exterior wall sculpture using recycled beer cans formed into ivy and invasive plant shapes; an interior 3D installation by Ben Van Citters and Patrick Richardson Wright; and an interactive installation by Watanabe and Joseph Gray (Superfad) that will upload viewers’ images to a Tumblr/Twitter site.

The other participating artists are Cait Willis, Celeste Kooning, C. M. Ruiz, Derek Erdman, Evan Blackwell, Hayley Young, Jess Rees and Jihee Kim, Marc Tweed, Mark Baumgarten, Meghan Trainor, Nichole Rathburn, Rachel Ratner and Keith Whiteman, Renegade Planners Collective, Specs Wizard and Stacey Rozich.

The Capitol Hill Block Party takes place July 20-22 on six blocks of the Pike-Pine corridor.
