11th Street Bridge Park and Washington Performing Arts have received an award of $250,000 from ArtPlace America, to support community-driven East of the River arts programming and the continued work of transforming an old freeway into a new civic space over the Anacostia River.

"My grandkids will be proud to tell people that their grandma (Mimi) was part of the team that that helped to make the 11th Street Bridge Park happen."
