Family Day: All Things Gullah - Call to Artists!

The Smithsonian Institution’s Anacostia Community Museum is organizing a special event, Family Day: All Things Gullah, on Saturday, July 23 from 11AM to 4PM (In the case of inclement weather, the event will be held on Sunday, July 24th).

This is the close-out event for the museum’s current exhibition, Word, Shout, Song: Lorenzo Dow Turner Connecting Communities through Language. The event will be a last-chance viewing of the exhibition before it closes the following day on July 24th. It will be a fun-filled day for the whole family with live entertainment, storytelling, arts & crafts demonstrations and workshops, face painting, oral history presentations and a vendor’s marketplace. The event will conclude with hopefully the largest “Ring Shawt” ever recorded. This program is FREE and open to the public.

As a part of the Family Day, the Anacostia Community Museum invites artists and crafters from the DC, Virginia and Maryland areas to apply to become vendors. Applications received by
June 17th will receive priority consideration.

To receive an application, please email Soyini George at or call 202.633.4807.
