Celebrate like it’s 1919 or 1974, as the building turns 100 and the Art Center turns 45.
Enjoy light fare and drinks, a retrospective showcase, guest presenters, and live music. Guest MC for the evening will be Mikaela Lefrak, WAMU arts and culture reporter.
The night will feature the opening of 45: An Anniversary Exhibition in Target Gallery honoring the legacy of the founding artists of the Art Center. It will also premiere a new documentary on the history of the Art Center, directed and produced by Alexandria’s own Istrico Productions.
