If you are someone who can’t fathom staying indoors just because of a ‘little’ snow, then perhaps adventuring over to the pop-up gallery called Activation 2719 might just be your perfect excuse to break-out. Activation 2719 is presented by Ready Set DC and No Kings Collective, a DC artist collective that promotes the relationship between area artists and their city, and will be kicking off a two week exhibition on Saturday at 6 p.m. with food from CommonWealth Gastropub and music via DJ Fleg and DJ Tom Lim – with vocals by Sheena Alexis and Bullfight Academy.

The exhibit will continue through February 20th and features the following local artists: Anieken Udofia, Bryan Rojsuontikul, Brandon Hill, Francisco Esteban, Batool Al-Shomrani, Peter Chang, Emily Greene Liddle, Tim “CON” Conlon, DECOY, and James Walker.

To attend, RSVP here by 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Activation 2719 is located at 2719 13th Street NW, Washington DC.

Samantha can often be found daydreaming by the Rothkos of the East Gallery, sketching store facades along 14th, and snapping photos with her vintage polaroid at 9:30 club concerts. Since moving to DC in 2007 to get an MFA in Interior Design, her eyes can’t seem to be peeled away from the beautiful things in this city.
