About Mars Arts D.C.
Mars Arts D.C. is a creative platform for Washington Performing Arts and the D.C. community to celebrate and empower local artists through performances, unique educational programs, and interdisciplinary grassroots collaborations that showcase the diversity and vitality of our city. D.C. has always been an incubator for powerful artistic voices with worldwide resonance, from Duke Ellington and Todd Duncan to Shirley Horn and Chuck Brown. Reflective of our founder Patrick Hayes’ motto, “Everybody in, nobody out,” Mars Arts D.C. amplifies the role of local artists throughout Washington Performing Arts’ productions, educational opportunities, and special events. Mars Arts D.C. also curates educational workshops, master classes, and student performances that connect local students with distinguished performers, in conjunction with our signature education programs, such as the Capital Arts Partnership, Embassy Adoption Program, and Gospel Choirs. Mars Arts D.C. is anchored by residencies for leading artists and ensembles, curated performances across all eight wards, and artistic happenings that reflect what it means to call D.C. home.


Co-presented by The Frame Factory, Casa de la Cultura El Salvador, and Mars Arts D.C., a partnership of Mars, Incorporated and Washington Performing Arts, with generous support from Jacqueline Badger Mars.
