The Mayor’s Arts Awards, the most prestigious art awards in the District, was extraordinary and our very own Paul Wharton kept the crowd on its feet!
As the night began and the garage doors of Dock 5 were closed, the show began and DC’s most voted for and influential artists were awarded for their talents, their contribution to the District, and their perseverance to enlighten DC of their causes and ideas.
Throughout the ceremony there were multiple musical performances from local artists who paved their way in the city and were honored before our beloved Mayor Muriel Bowser. Not only that but Paul honored many of the performers by highlighting their journeys in his introductions and informing the crowd of the many accomplishments of these artists and performers.
As the night came to a close, the ceremony ended but the celebration had just begun! Behind the stage and audience set up, there were three food trucks and dessert displays.Each food truck brought its own flavor and excitement to the after party. The trucks provided incredible Peruvian food, briskets, crab and shrimp fries, and multi flavored chicken wings. Not only that, but the Vegan population of the DC art scene was greatly satisfied with their own truck that provided a multitude of options!
This night would not have been possibly without the extremely hard work of Events DC, the fabulous Angie Gates, our beloved Mayor Muriel Bowser, and of course, the insanely talented artists and performers of the District of Columbia!
