September 7: Wunder Garten Art Installation Opening Event

POW! WOW! DC may be over until May 2018, but art happens in NoMa all year long. The latest example of that is at our favorite neighborhood beer garden.

In collaboration with the Wunder Garten team and the landscape designer Ben Sherman, D.C. artist Hernan Gigena has created a visual experience for all to enjoy. The installation is called "Mandala: Connecting the Dots," and it incorporates the visual elements from his latest series, Modern Psychedelia (circles, lines, and texture), but with a new meaning. The Mandala installation is about connecting people in a socially challenged moment in our country's history. 

The project has three parts: the central Mandala on the floor, the table artwork, and the hanging sculpture. The central piece inspires loving, helping, sharing and giving. The tables visually connect with the central piece. And finally, the sculpture integrates the hanging garden with the whole installation. "It’s all about fostering a positive attitude, connection with people and nature," says Gigena. "I hope that the beauty of the installation enhances the Wunder Garten experience."


All are invited to the installation's opening event, happening this THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

DDOT's Recent Work in NoMa — and a September 19 Meeting

Among the many ongoing things the NoMa BID works on, among the most important is our coordination with the D.C. Department of Transportation (DDOT) on infrastructure improvements in the neighborhood. Those efforts have recently paid off with two recent actions, shown above: (1) the installation of a new two-way protected bike lane on M Street NE, in front of Uline Arena, for increased cyclist safety; and (2) the conversion of Pierce Street NE between North Capitol Street and First Street NE to two-way usage, which will allow more-efficient traffic movement within this burgeoning neighborhood. 

And the work continues. On TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, DDOT will hold its fourth public meeting to discuss the final concept for the New York Avenue Streetscape and Trail Project. The purpose of this project is to develop implementable design solutions to enhance safety and aesthetics along New York Avenue NE. At the meeting, DDOT will present the final design concept and gather feedback from the community. The meeting will be an open house format with a brief presentation by DDOT staff at 6:30 pm.

• Location: Gallaudet University, I. King Jordan Student Academic Center, 800 Florida Ave. NE
• Transit Options: WMATA Bus 90, 92 Line; Metro Red Line / NoMa-Gallaudet U Station

For more information about the meeting, visit the project website or contact Katherine Youngbluth, katherine.youngbluth@dc.gov, or Michael Alvino at michael.alvino@dc.gov.
