August Free-for-All

Inside. Outdoors. In-person. Online. At WSS and all around D.C., 

August Free-for-All was an amazing success thanks to everyone who came out and participated in our free August events!

A month-long celebration of the art and public art programming, WSS was thrilled to offer free public art events throughout August.
