Art Connection in the Capital Region Presents: Moving Walls
4:00pm - 7:00pm, 2:00pm - 6:00pm
Moving Walls is an art exhibition and placement project organized by the Art Connection in the Capital Region (ACCR) in collaboration with the Atlas Performing Art Center, a historic and cultural anchor in the H Street, Northeast community of Washington, DC. The Atlas fosters and presents stellar art in theatre, dance, music, vocal and choral work, spoken word, and more.
ACCR is a nonprofit organization that enriches lives by expanding access to original works of visual art within underserved communities throughout Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. ACCR fulfills its mission through the operation of an innovative art donation and placement program that connects artists and collectors who generously donate their artwork with qualified nonprofits that serve their clients directly.
By making art accessible to more members of our community, we are enabling individuals, who might not otherwise have the opportunity, to experience the beauty, inspiration, and hope that art enables.
At the conclusion of the exhibition, all of the artwork will be permanently gifted to the recipient agenciessix nonprofits within Washington, DC that are working diligently to improve their communities.

Recipient Nonprofits: Academy of Hope Adult Public Charter School creates lasting impact in our community by offering tailored educational services for adults who, due to low-literacy and insufficient basic skills, are not able to find or retain living-wage employment and are often trapped in a cycle of poverty. We believe education is transformative and the first crucial step in breaking the cycle of poverty.
