Illuminating Historic Georgetown: GLOW DC Design Tour

September 24, 2021 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Levain Bakery (3131 M Street NW)

In a uniquely illuminating experience, DC Design Tours will be featuring Georgetown’s GLOW art installations on a special Historic Georgetown evening walking tour! A mention of modern Georgetown typically conjures up images of stately brick homes, tidy tree-lined streets, elegant cemeteries, bustling shops, and a world class University. Now one of the most idyllic and elite neighborhoods in Washington DC, Georgetown’s origins are much less picturesque. Described by Abigail Adams as “a dirty little hole,” Georgetown began as a gritty colonial port, replete with ruffians, sailors, slave traders, brothels, and saloons. In this rags to riches tale, we’ll be learning about Georgetown’s historic transformation, sharing the secrets of DC’s most exclusive neighborhood, and shining a light on the contemporary artists behind GLOW’s immersive installations.

The tour begins outside of Levain Bakery at 3131 M St NW and ends at Potomac St and M St NW at The Weight of A Rainbow GLOW installation.

Duration: 2 Hours
When: Sunday, September 12th 6-8pm, and Friday, September 24th, 7-9pm
