ONE MORE THING
WPA Presents One More Thing, a new installation by Tang, which questions the intersection of Nature and City.
Each summer Tang travels extensively to remote locations where he is surrounded by nature and spends every waking moment outdoors. After his most recent journey to Guatemala and Belize, he encountered a difficult adjustment period getting back to a ‘normal’ routine of urban living. One More Thing is an installation about the journey from the rural to urban and is particularly apt for the NoMa neighborhood as it works to reclaim its parks space and enliven the urban sprawl of its history. One More Thing is not a one-way journey but rather a call to action to bring these two worlds closer.
ABOUT THE LOBBY PROJECT
Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) is honored to partner with the NoMa BusinessImprovement District (NoMa BID) to create a changing installation of artwork by outstanding artists for the NoMa Lobby Project. The Lobby Project, made possible by a grant from the Office of Planning, creates a new space in an existing place. The project is an activation of an office lobby at 1200 First St. NE, with a ‘Nerds in NoMa’ speaker series, art, wifi, lectures, and the creation of a new social and professional gathering space.
