Politics & Art: District Vox

Now in its fifth year, Politics & Art: District Vox is an annual “Made in D.C.” performing arts showcase presented by Councilmember David Grosso and Mars Arts D.C. Join us at The Wilson Building on June 13 for a celebration of D.C.’s vibrant arts community with performances by singers, vocal ensembles, bands, spoken word artists, and actors. Artists and ensembles are invited to apply free of charge, and will be selected by a panel of arts and community leaders. Visit for more information. This year’s event features D.C.-based Latinx artists who will share stories and poetry about their lives in our community. The Washington Gas Main Stage is hosted by Rayceen Pendarvis, host of The Ask Rayceen Show.
