Moving Walls is an art exhibition and placement project organized by the Art Connection in the Capital Region (ACCR) in collaboration with the Atlas Performing Art Center, a historic and cultural anchor in the H Street, Northeast community of Washington, DC. The Atlas fosters and presents stellar art in theatre, dance, music, vocal and choral work, spoken word, and more.
ACCR is a nonprofit organization that enriches lives by expanding access to original works of visual art within underserved communities throughout Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. ACCR fulfills its mission through the operation of an innovative art donation and placement program that connects artists and collectors who generously donate their artwork with qualified nonprofits that serve their clients directly.
By making art accessible to more members of our community, we are enabling individuals, who might not otherwise have the opportunity, to experience the beauty, inspiration, and hope that art enables.
At the conclusion of the exhibition, all of the artwork will be permanently gifted to the recipient agencies—six nonprofits within Washington, DC that are working diligently to improve their communities.
