Arts in Foggy Bottom
Arts in Foggy Bottom is a project of the Foggy Bottom Association, a private non-profit 501© 3 organization founded in 1959. The Arts in Foggy Bottom goals are to: (1) enrich the cultural environment of the Foggy Bottom community by providing exposure to the visual arts, especially sculpture; (2) create educational opportunities for residents, non-residents and students as they relate to the visual arts; (3) draw the attention of people who live outside of Foggy Bottom to this unique, historically-significant residential neighborhood; and (4) create a catalyst for energizing and connecting the business, educational, and residential communities of Foggy Bottom and the adjacent areas.
