FIGMENT Weekend is Here!

The FIGMENT DC 2015 map is now available. So much great art!

IMPORTANT ADDRESS INFORMATION: Online maps have spotty accuracy for the location of the event. Please note that the address is NOT 1900 S St. SE. Please use “Anacostia Park, Section E” as the address in your smartphone. The park is along the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, and we'll be located at the Skating Pavilion. Check out our Getting There page for all the specifics.

Bringing Art to FIGMENT?

Thank you to all of you who submitted your projects for FIGMENT DC! We are thrilled with the level of variety and interactivity of your projects, and can’t wait to see you fill the fields and tree-filled spaces of Anacostia Park.

Did you miss the deadline? We still want you to join us at FIGMENT! After all, FIGMENT is all about Participation! (Really, it is.  Check out our 11 Principles.)

You’re welcome to show up the weekend of the event and come out to have fun with costumes, hoops, kites, games, and even your puppy, so long as he’s on a leash. At this time, since we’ve received our permit from the Capital Area National Park Service, and we want to stay on good terms with them, all unregistered projects may not include

  • Shade structures
  • Electricity or Water
  • Stage access
  • Food, drink or alcohol for sale or distribution
  • Corporate branding, flyer distribution, or anything for sale
  • Hanging items from trees (not allowed) or attaching items to park infrastructure (also not allowed)
  • Lengthy set-up time (more than 30 minutes)
  • Special transport requirements for set-up or take-down

If you have any questions, please review our Submit a Project or Artist FAQ pages, and contact us at dc@figmentproject.org 

If your project has been accepted and you have questions about the logistics of the weekend, please contact your curator and keep your eyes open for email updates. Click here to see the list of this year’s artists!
