One of the interesting features of the DC arts scene is the pop-up temporium project. The basic idea is that neighborhood organizations award grants to projects that open up empty buildings to use as retail/exhibit/performance space. They pop up, seemingly, out of nowhere, are only open for a few weeks, then close down. During that time they feature local designers, crafts, artists, and musicians. The one that everyone's been talking about is the Mt. Pleasant Temporium, which closed over the weekend. The shot above is from the Garment District, which is open at 7th and New York until March 20th.
