A few weeks ago I checked out this event that is being co-sponsored by ReCreative Spaces (along with other local organizations) known as Art in the Park(ing Lot). The event kicked off on August 7 with a painting party where a variety of artists spray-painted the now-boarded up Brentwood Village Shopping Center (located along Route 1 in the Northeastern section of Washington, DC). I took some photos of the party itself.

I returned to the site a few days later so I could photograph the completed art site.

Adventure Dental & Vision is the one business that’s still opened in that shopping center but not for much longer. One of its signs mentioned that this business will be relocating in a different shopping center by the end of this month.
