The Future of Sports

MITD opens a pop-up art installation in the H St Corridor.

After endlessly visiting New York city for seasonal pop-up art installations, I found myself containing my excitement as I stood on a baby pink tennis court surrounded by a wall of tennis balls.

Made in the District (MITD) opened The Future of Sports, an interactive exhibition, yesterday evening. The museum is similar to experiences to 29Rooms, The Museum of Ice Cream and The Boba Room. Yet it’s positivity can be felt throughout the District for showcasing the city in a creative light.

Visitors can tour a royal blue indoor track on the first floor while enjoying cocktails and music. Downstairs there are nine rooms that host sports in the most Instagramable fashion. Stand against a holographic basketball court or cycle in a neon red room. Either way, you’ll be snapping pics.

  

The Future of Sports runs through November 30. Tickets are sold online.

Sunset at Sweden

An evening at the Embassy of Sweden for an interactive art installation.

Made in the District teamed up with the Embassy of Sweden and GLINT for an immersive art installation event on April 19th. Justin and I walked along the Georgetown waterfront before venturing inside to see a live exhibition in a dimly lit room. The showcase highlighted tales of craft from Sweden and mixed vogue, street art, nature, pop culture and more. Despite the variety of elements, they all came together for a beautiful art piece I felt I could sit inside for hours.

Several moments included the room changing from light to dark to represent the change from day to night settings. Pieces glowed, lights tinkered and life-size screenings of Swedish culture filled the walls of the room. It felt incredible to feel as if I was in a wonderland of some sort.

Sunset at Sweden took place on April 19th from 6-9 p.m. courtesy of Made in the District, the Embassy of Sweden and GLINT
