Join the NoMa Business Improvement District, District of Columbia Public Schools and the students of Design District at Coolidge High School for the Lobby Project: Identity Corral's opening reception. This festive event will include light fare, beverages, sweet treats and music by DJ Kryptk.
Identity Corral examines the construction of identity in the context of school pride. The work challenges students to investigate the 75 years of school heritage, visual identity and stereotypes, both internal and imposed. Students utilized multiple media including graphic design, digital photography, painting, and found objects to develop a capsule collection of clothing that speaks true to current students and alumni. In the “making” of imagery and in “branding” of oneself students are empowered and their inner voice expressed.
NoMa’s art openings, part of the Lobby Project, display original works from DC and Baltimore artists. Since 2013, the Lobby Project has brought comfortable furniture, great art and programming to the formerly empty lobby of 1200 First Street, NE.
