4 | End of Month Report

You didn't think some hardhats and a little dust was going to stop our sixth annual Passover Seder, did you?

Your end of month report is as follows:

  • Exhibiting selected works from Elsewhere's curated residency, Southern Constellations at the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center hosted a convergence of Southern arts leaders on Saturday, April 30th in Washington, DC. Catch a glimpse of the panels exploring alternative practices and resources on Flickr. Southern Constellations is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

  • Our sixth annual Passover Seder on Tuesday, April 26th was a hit even with the restoration underway. Passover at Elsewhere pairs traditional foods with an untraditional telling of the Passover story across the museum’s three floors.
  • We're still counting down the days for our doors to open. Until then, share a blessing with us below and enjoy our restoration documentation via Facebook. #RestoreElsewhere
