There are some great events happening along U street this weekend. Here’s the rundown:

  • Vonn Sumner's Pink Moon

    On Friday, Morton Fine Art will unveil its innovative art lab at 18th and U. The first show, “Small Works on Paper” will be open from 6-9. Featured artists will be Vonn Sumner, Rosemary Feit Covey, and Laurel Hausler. This exhibit is also a part of the pop-up project, which is unrelated to the Pop-up Living stuff we saw on U street recently.
  • On Saturday, Eatonville is hosting a charity event called Broken Gulf, benefiting the Louisiana Bucket Brigade. Tickets are $10 and available online or at the door. From 4-6 there will be poetry, live music, and a raffle. The event will feature the DC Youth Slam Team, DC Poets Sonya Renee, Chris August, and Kyle Dargan, and Mississippi Poet Angela Ball. Raffle items from Fiddleheads, ACKC, and a Mississippi eco-friendly clothing artisan. Lousiana Bucket Brigade is a grassroots environmental health and justice organization that has been helping residents living near refineries fight air pollution and is now helping those residents track and respond to the BP Oil Spill Disaster.
