DC Commission On The Arts & Humanities AFP Exhibition

>


The DCCAH announces the 2011 Artist Fellowship Program (AFP) exhibition, opening this coming Friday. The DC Commission AFP offers grants to individual artists who make a significant contribution to the arts and who strive to promote the arts in the District of Columbia. This year’s show is held at the Smith Farm Gallery on U Street. Interestingly, about a half dozen of the artists in the fellowship show are included in Lenny Campello‘s book on Washington DC artists – the book that has created a bit of controversy regarding the press coverage that has surrounded the yet-to-be-published tome.
