Tonight: Lobby Project Art Opening
The final art installation will be unveiled in the Lobby Project tonight, January 23. Artist Edmond van der Bijl used pizza boxes and acrylic paint to create a captivating piece entitled You Don’t Actually Think….

The colorful grid-like work spells out a message that challenges the viewer’s perceptions of what can be art, where it can be seen, and how it can be experienced.  A Franco-Dutch-American artist, Edmond was born and raised in DC and brings a multicultural lens to his work. Edmond’s art opening is a free and public event and includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine with entry.

The Lobby Project is an initiative funded by a grant from the DC Office of Planning and the NoMa BID to enliven a previously underutilized office lobby with evening programming, such as art openings and Nerds in NoMa speaker talks, as well as a pop-up café weekday mornings. (Read below for more about Shannon!) Stop by the Lobby Project at 1200 First Street, NE and enjoy this hub of activity before it goes on hiatus in 30-days. More at www.nerdsinthelobby.com.

Special thank you to Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) for curating all of the Lobby Project art installations, and to their members for their fantastic vision, creativity, and expertise. This project would not have been possible without NoMa BID’s other partners, including: Principal Financial Group, Polinger Shannon & Luchs, Ayers Saint Gross, the DC Office of Planning, Uncle Chip’s Cookies, Interface, and Union Kitchen.
