Mad Homes, Capitol Hill

Skin in the evening light

July 14th – August 7th, 2011

Prior to salvage, a group of neighboring homes in North Capitol Hill was used by artists to create site-specific installations. Artists were free to use both the interior and exterior spaces of the homes as their creative canvases to produce dynamic artinstallations. MadArt believes these homes provided a noteworthy venue for the public to view art. Artists were given a unique opportunity to work in a temporary space, without conventional gallery show constraints. The selected artists’ works included energetic and innovative paintings and sculptures. MadArt’s goal on this art project was to provide unexpected enjoyment and a distinctive educational experience for the neighborhood and visitors, while providing local artists a valuable and rare opportunity to create artwork.
