Evans Celebrates  Grand Reopening of  Historic Howard Theatre

From Councilman Jack Evans' newsletter: Councilmember Evans joined city leaders and members of the arts community this week for the Howard Theatre Community Day and grand reopening of the historic venue. After a thirty year hiatus, the theatre, located at 620 T Street, NW, has benefited from a $29 million renovation.

"I am honored to be a part of this historic event at the theatre that launched the careers of such greats as Marvin Gaye, Duke Ellington, and Ella Fitzgerald," said Evans. "The arts are integral to the fabric of our neighborhoods and city and their importance cannot be overstated."

The Community Day celebration kicked off the theatre's opening week, which included a fundraising gala and the return of performances to the theatre.

A Preview of Spaces 17, 18 & 19 at the 2012 DC Design House

 

This is the Sixth of an Eight-Part Feature on the designers’ vision and progress at the DC Design House, which is underway and set to open on April 14th.

The top floor of the Fifth Annual DC Design House includes three spaces. Susan Nelson of Susan Nelson Interiors of Great Falls, VA, www.susannelsoninteriors.com, is designing Space 17, the Daughter’s Bedroom. By combining block and geometric prints in green, yellow, pink, brown and cream, Nelson creates a cozy haven. “By using a mix of new and repurposed furniture, the room has a quality of changing along with the girl,” Nelson says. For instance, the coverlet features a sophisticated fabric with a watercolor quality, while the club chair is slipcovered in a fun confetti print in pinks and purples that the “daughter” might have loved as a child.
