Things to Do: FotoWeek DC

It's almost that time again for FotoWeekDC. This annual, week-long event began in 2008 as a way for DC photographers, both professionals and amateurs, to showcase their work. This year's event event will be held November 5-12, with a launch party on the 4th. (see below for more info)

This year's "FotoWeek Hub" will be located at 1800 L Street NW (where the old Border's was at the corner of 18th & L Street NW). I actually walked by this morning and saw them setting up, can't wait to check it. Another exciting part about FotoWeekDC is it's FREE! Just one of the many perks of living in the Washington, DC area.

Here's more information about the event taken from their website.

With over 50,000 square feet of space, FotoWeek Central will host 14 individual photography exhibitions. Four additional satellite locations include FotoSpace, The Corcoran Gallery of Art, George Washington University, and the Pepco Edison Place Art Gallery. Additionally, many FotoWeekDC partners will have events in conjunction with the festival, listed on our FotoWeekDC Schedule of Events.

Expect to see the very best in photojournalism, commercial photography and art photography. All Exhibitions are free and open to the public. Continue to visit our website as additional exhibitions, programs, pop-up events, and partners are being added daily!
