By The People x Monochrome Art Fair


For this year’s festival, Halcyon is partnering with Monochrome Collective for a By The People Art Fair featuring all local artists. The art fair provides a showcase for local talent while also giving collectors an opportunity to take home a piece of the festival while supporting D.C.’s growing art world.
