Exhibitions

A key component of the Crystal City BID’s efforts to change how people see and perceive the area has been the creative use of retail and office space that is in transition or underutilized. Incorporating art into these spaces, adds energy, interest, and activity to otherwise dormant and uninteresting spaces. At the same time, these exhibitions provide yet another fun and exciting activity for residents, employees, and visitors adding value to area restaurants and businesses.
