Last chance to see LUMEN8 Anacostia, closing party this Saturday June 16th

It’s the last week of LUMEN8 Anacostia, below is a quote from an interview about Developing Anacostia through the Arts:

When people talk about Anacostia now and in the future, they almost always frame it in terms of another neighborhood. I always say Anacostia does not have to be the next U Street; it just has to be the next Anacostia. What I see for Anacostia is more of a flourishing community. It will have more diversity than what you see in most neighborhoods.
I will bet my bottom dollar that there is going to be a day when people say ‘Damn, I should have moved to that neighborhood. I should have bought that house.’
