The Pop-Up shop has always been a cornerstone of DC Design Week. It’s how we feature and support talented creators – from ceramicists to illustrators – across the DMV. With our virtual approach to DC Design Week this year comes a unique opportunity to celebrate makers and infuse the infectious DIY energy into every element of the week. Read on for ways that you can participate!
Calling all emerging artists !
This year is a celebration of the creative voices in our community. We’re putting our money where our mouth is and commissioning custom poster designs from up to five emerging designers from the DMV. These 11x17” posters will be printed and available for sale (along with our DCDW 2020 merch!) at an online shop hosted by Cherry Blossom Creative .
Posters will capture our theme for 2020: that DC is more than the politics we’re known for — that we know our home city and region to be more diverse, vibrant, and innovative than people could possibly imagine.
Each artist will receive $500 for their commission as well as 60% of all proceeds from sales of their design. Artists will be selected by a committee of established artists — Dany Green , Sonia Jones , Jodi Kostelnik , Josue Martinez , and Torie Partridge .
Applications are now closed.
