Georgetown Waterfront GLOW

Much of Georgetown’s genteel charm is derived from the graceful Federal architecture found along its tree-lined streets.  Yet it’s the remarkable citizenry of Washington’s oldest neighborhood that has truly defined its character.  Architects, urban visionaries, entrepreneurs, and activists have made their imprint on Georgetown, often receiving national recognition for their efforts.  No wonder the Georgetown Business Improvement District sees fit to invite internationally-recognized artists to create public light art installations throughout the historic district every December.  Innovative artworks for an innovative community! Join Washington Walks for a walking tour that features not only five Georgetown GLOW outdoor artworks, but also historic sites associated with creative types like architects Arthur Cotton Moore and David Adjaye, activist-visionaries such Fr. Rick Curry, SJ and Constance Milstein, the entrepreneurial Dodge family, and even Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas.


Led by Carolyn, David, and Phoebe
