A total of five artist teams each performed a 2-4 minute synchronized performance accompanied by music in the Capitol Skyline Hotel pool. A panel of experts and art aficionados, including WonKee Moon (Competition Chair for the District of Columbia Aquatics Club and the International Gay & Lesbian Aquatics Representative to the Gay Games), Spike Mendelsohn (Top Chef contestant and founder Good Stuff Eatery), and Philippa Hughes (art evangelist and founder The Pink Line Project), judged the performances.
Prizes donated by the Capitol Skyline Hotel were awarded in three categories: best performance, best visual spectacle, and crowd favorite. Immediately following the WPA SynchroSwim, attendees were invited to swim in the pool and enjoy drinks and food served poolside.
SynchroSwim was presented in conjunction with a series of video lounge / poolside art projects hosted by The RUBELL FAMILY COLLECTION + Conner Contemporary Art at the Capitol Skyline Hotel.
