At D.C. I was greeted by Casey Smith, a poet and professor at Corcoran College of Art & Design. We went for lunch and he showed em around. In the evening, we went to Poetry Salon, and he introduced me to his friends. D.C. surprised me with its enormous memorial park - it is impossible to see it all in one day, and with the many galleries and museums - it is impossible to see them all in such a short time
On Sunday, Casey invited me to a rather sad event. Concoran gallery of art is closing. There were many people who are either interested in art, create art, or connected to art in some other way. Casey tried to introduce me to those people, even though the atmosphere was sad and people were rather quiet.
This photo of Casey Smith I took approximately 20 minutes before Concoran gallery was closing its door forever.
