AN EVENT CELEBRATING
THE CREATIVITY AND RESILIENCE
OF ARTISTS WHO PERSEVERE
AND BETTER OUR LIVES
THROUGH THE ARTS
Washington Performing Arts champions the arts as a unifying force. Through collaborations with artists, educators, community leaders, and institutional partners, they bring a wide-range of artistic programs to stages, schools, and neighborhoods throughout our nation’s capital and beyond.
The goal for WPA’s 2022 gala was to illustrate the power of the arts—from the inside out, showcasing the interconnectivity and impact it has in all quadrants (NW, SW, NE, SE) and wards (1–8). As the city is diverse in many ways, DC is seen as a federal town and a tourist destination. However, to those of us who call it home, the story is so much richer and powerful with art being a key element of the story and comforting us during the very dark and challenging time of the pandemic.
The branding reflects the colorful, dynamic essence of the arts—both visual and performing. The custom handpainted background offers a sense of movement connecting the the two art forms to eachother and to the city itself.
