Project the Funk
PROJECT THE FUNK EXPERIENCE
saturday May 6th// Near Amsterdam Lounge & The Howard Theater Plaza// 8:00Pm - 10:30PM
Once the parade has rumbled through the neighborhood and the horns, bass and beats of the day fair have retreated into the official Funk Parade evening venues, the lights will really come out to shine.
For the first time, Funk Parade is partnering with Quince Imaging, DC’s premiere image projection, 3D technology and video graphics content company to create a #Future Funk Projection Mapping Experience throughout the neighborhood on May 6th. Featured projection artists include Craig Winslow and his Light Capsules, DC’s very own Robin Bell of Bell Visuals, artist quannumthrow and many more will be showcasing their work on the facades of DC’s most iconic structures. Additional performances and Street Jam with Malik The Drummer, The Sanctuaries, Pyroxotic and many other DC street performers will be happening simultaneously.
