Giveaway: Win a Family Visit to Crystalline at ARTECHOUSE!

Immerse in Crystalline at ARTECHOUSE


ARTECHOUSE, the gallery in Southwest DC known for its visually stunning and immersive digital art, just announced that its current exhibition, Crystalline, has been extended through February.  Even better, you have a chance to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to experience it!

Crystalline has transformed the gallery into a blue-hued haven intended to evoke calm and peace during a turbulent time.  Large scale projections on the walls of the main gallery and smaller ones in side areas engage and enchant as they encourage play.   Just about all of it is interactive, as the images change with viewers’ motions. Immersing into the depths of the color, even just for a little while, is a dazzling and delightful escape from the bizarre Covid world outside.

ARTECHOUSE is taking extra measures to ensure safety in response to Covid-19.  Capacity is limited, guests must wear masks,  directional signage helps social distancing, there are hand sanitizing stations, and cleaning and disinfecting takes place hourly.  You can read more about their safety policies here.

Crystalline is running at ARTECHOUSE through February 28, 2021.  Tickets are $19-24/adult, $12-15/child, $17-20/students, seniors, military & first responders (the lower price for online advance tickets, higher at the door).  Children under 4 are free.
