Get Out! And REACH Out!

by Peggy Robin

The highlighted event for this week's "Get Out" column is not just for this week!

You have until February 28 to visit UNITY | PEACE | FORWARD, the outdoor art installation at THE REACH (the new buildings and grounds of the Kennedy Center, opened in the fall of 2019, a few months before the pandemic descended and put an end to indoor gatherings and events.

Here's the invitation to all to experience this art event - safely and productively:

The REACH: January 22–February 28, 2021

In response to a period of unprecedented world challenges the Kennedy Center is reaching out to connect with the global community to reflect on the healing power of the arts. This intimate conversation between performers, artists, writers, and cultural leaders is a glimpse into the minds of creatives about their hopes, fears, dreams, and aspirations in a time of uncertainty and isolation. The public is also invited to join the conversation through social media with #UnityPeaceForward.  

Developed by the Kennedy Center as a collaboration between International Programming and the Office of Accessibility and VSA, UNITY | PEACE | FORWARD elevates the voices of artists with disabilities and continues the Center’s commitment to accessibility with this companion online component.

The exhibit features three installations scattered across the grounds of the REACH, on public view daily. A video of quotes from around the world will be projected on the Video Wall each Friday and Saturday evening from 4:30–8:30 p.m. during the exhibit and can be viewed online at any time.

The "Get Out!" (or "Stay In!) events column is published on the Cleveland Park Listserv and on All Life Is Local on Thursdays.
