The Week Ahead….The Corner Store Retires – Capitol Hill’s Neighborhood Arts Venue
by Larry Janezich
The Week Ahead…
Again, there is nothing Capitol Hill Corner’s radar this week. Capitol Hill Corner notes with regret the retirement of The Corner Store, and salutes Kris Swanson and Roy Mustelier for sharing their home, talents, and time with the community.
After a 16 + year run of bringing art, poetry and the performing arts to Capitol Hill, as well providing training in the arts for hundreds Capitol Hill students, Corner Store Arts is moving on. The following notice is from The Corner Store’s website:
Dear Friends of the Corner Store,
It’s been a long run, but Roy and I have retired, and the Corner Store
will retire as well in 2020. Our deep gratitude to the Capitol Hill Community Foundation
for helping support Corner Store projects since 2002 and big love to our
friends for all you’ve donated and done to keep the home fires burning.
We hope to see you often on DC visits and plan to stay in touch!
Corner Store Arts
900 South Carolina Avenue SE
Washington DC 20003
We owe a debt of gratitude and a heartfelt thanks to Kris Swanson and Roy Mustelier for immeasurably enriching the community and making all of our lives better. Here’s a link to an article on the dedication of one of Corner Store Arts community projects, the YUME Tree: http://bit.ly/39nAFsO
