5x5—A Project of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities is an ambitious District-wide program of contemporary, ephemeral public art dedicated to exploring new perspectives on our city through the lens of five curators. In fact, it is the largest, temporary public art project in Washington, DC. The project will begin in early September and end by December.

To achieve the 5x5 objectives, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) commissions five highly experienced and innovative art professionals, who each select five artists to develop and present exciting, publicly accessible art works. The result is 25 projects that activate and enliven all eight wards and add a layer of creativity and artistic expression to the District's neighborhoods. This unique curatorial approach allows for a different artistic viewpoint from each curator, resulting in a wide range of diverse, compelling installations and performances.

Through 5x5, DCCAH continues to develop opportunities for curators and artists to engage in the experimental and to further their artistic development through authentic relationship building with the community, actively using the environment and its materials in the creation of artworks, and exploring themes of social justice.

The 5x5 curators for 2014 are Lance Fung, Shamim Momin, Stephanie Sherman, Justine Topfer and A.M. Weaver.
