First-ever CWC Grant Awarded to Cultural DC's Mobile Art Gallery

May 22, 2018

Under the leadership of Molly Rolandi, our Grants Committee presented its first-ever award of $15,000 to Cultural DC's Mobile Art Gallery. Please view the photo and press release by clicking here.

The Mobile Art Gallery was chosen from an original field of sixteen extremely well-qualified applicants, representing museums, schools, artists, and non-profit entities. These applicants were narrowed down to three finalists who were then voted upon by CWC's membership.

The Mobile Art Gallery is a fully converted 40 feet shipping container transformed into an immersive art environment. The Mobile Art Gallery moves every 8 weeks and features a new artist and a unique community-centered art experience designed to connect with every neighborhood it visits. The Mobile Art Gallery will visit every ward in Washington, DC during its first year.
