Wednesday, June 25 - Alexandria, Virginia to Washington, DC
The Torpedo Factory may be one of the best public art spaces in the country. Over 160 artists paint, sculpt, shred, pound, blow, and bend their creations to life as the public observes, buys from, and asks questions. We participate in carving glass with Alison Sigethy before she embarks on a 3000-mile kayak adventure through Arctic Canada. Susan Makara’s textured paintings of stacked stones seem to jump from the canvas like flying fish from the sea.
We maneuver around the DC monuments. They stand tall to remind us from where we came. We drive to discover what we have become.
