Nick Cave highlighted at THEARC's open house
Washington's THEARC (Town Hall Education, Arts Recreation Campus) hosted its 7th annual community open house November 28 with special guest Nick Cave, a renowned visual artist and dancer. The U.S. Department of State, in partnership with Art in Embassies (AIE), celebrated its 50th anniversary.
The AIE program has played a leading role in U.S. public diplomacy by promoting cross-cultural dialogue and understanding through the visual arts, and by sponsoring dynamic artist exchanges.
Abdou Muhummad, 32, pulled his traditional West African drums toward THEARC's green room before rehearsal on Tuesday night. He will play musical accompaniment for the dancers performing at the open house.
