The 11th Street Bridge Park and ARCH Development Corporation are partnering to examine critical affordable housing issues in two FREE public programs at the Anacostia Arts Center. These events complement the “Better Homes and Gardens” exhibition on view at the Anacostia Arts Center’s Vivid Solutions Gallery and the 11th Street Bridge Park’s Equitable Development Plan. Over the course of 8-weeks, Becky Borlan will transform Vivid Solutions into a whimsical urban jungle. The space will be filled with larger-than-life plant structures juxtaposed against tiny, hand-sized wax houses. Exhibition runs through November 18. And throughout 2016, the 11th Street Bridge Park has been implementing its Equitable Development Plant, an effort to ensure that nearby residents can continuously benefit from the future civic space.
“This bridge park will provide easier access for school kids, residents and visitors to get out on the water and enjoy and appreciate what’s out here.”
