Greater Reston Arts Center


The Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) is the largest nonprofit in Reston dedicated solely to enhancing community life through excellence and involvement in the visual arts. It serves 80,000 people annually, providing diverse local communities with abundant opportunities to experience and explore contemporary art through exhibitions, education programming, and the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival.


Join the Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) for a Creative Response by Lisa Page to the work of Stephanie J. Williams on view in the gallery. The short presentation is followed by open conversation. Presenters may include poets, dancers, writers, musicians, visual artists, and more. Much like the By the People festival itself, the Creative Response series, regularly occurring one Thursday a month, brings together visual art, performing art, and dialogue in an effort to create greater understanding. The scheduled Creative Response on June 20 features DC-based artist Stephanie J. Williams exploring themes of identity through omission and inclusion through a presentation of site-specific sculptural installations and video. This program and admission to GRACE is always free and open to the public.

Creative Response: Lisa Page, June 20, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Insights: Saisha Grayson, curator of time-based media at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and Stephanie Williams in conversation, June 22,11:00am
