Art All Night Returns to Shaw, 09/26/15!

From 7:00 PM on Saturday, September 26, 2015, until 3:00 AM the following morning, the Shaw neighborhood will once again be transformed into DC's version of Nuit Blanche, the original Parisian overnight arts festival! For the fourth time, Shaw will present scores of painters, photographers, filmmakers, dancers, musicians, and much more in an eight hour feast for the senses along 7th and 9th Streets, NW. And it's all free!

While you're exploring the arts, be sure to stop and enjoy Shaw's renowned restaurants, cafes, and bars for a drink or a bite to eat.  Some of the art and performances are in dining and drinking establishments, so you can have your art and eat and drink it, too!

For the full listing of venues, art installations, and performances, go to, pick up a copy of the Shaw event program and map at the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library on the night of the event, or download the free ArtAllNightDCShaw mobile app, and plan to spend a night (and early morning) in the neighborhood Where DC Comes Together.  Don't Sleep.

Art All Night DC: Nuit Blanche in Shaw is presented by Shaw Main Streets and sponsored by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the DC Department of Small and Local Business Development, DC Main Streets, the DC Department of Health's Rubber Revolution, and Events DC.
