In celebration of the museum’s 50th anniversary, we are pulling out all the stops. For the first time ever, the museum will hold its annual Mardi Gras event in our own 2,500 square foot main gallery!
That means more space for exciting art workshops, clowns, magicians, living statues, fortune tellers, face painting, balloon art, Marie Laveau (storyteller), live music, a family-style “second-line” parade down Bourbon Street’s red carpet, vendor’s marketplace, food vendor and more!
Kids and adults can also participate in a community art project called “The Key Idea“. The art produced will become part of a future exhibit in the Anacostia Community Museum’s loggia gallery.
Register online or call (202) 633-4844.
