Georgetown Waterfront GLOW

Sculpture titled "Let's Go Crazy" by artist Adrienne Gaither, part of Georgetown GLOW

Much of Georgetown’s genteel charm is derived from the graceful Federal architecture found along its tree-lined streets.  Yet equally appealing are smaller-scale residences built for working-class families located near the neighborhood’s waterfront, some found within alleys.  Alleyways were once an integral part of D.C.’s cultural landscape, serving as sites for housing, stables, garages, and warehouses.  This year’s Georgetown GLOW outdoor light experience features installations in three of the historic alleys that can be found in the neighborhood today.  Join this walking tour that will visit not only the four illuminated Georgetown GLOW artworks, but also the sites and alleyways connected to the blue-collar laborers, Black and White, who made the waterfront their home. (This walk begins in daylight and concludes at sunset to allow both neighborhood sites and GLOW artwork to be seen at best advantage.  Washington Walks does not control any aspect of the light sculptures.)
