The Dunes Will Close Its Doors for Good on April 30

Columbia Heights art gallery and performance venue the Dunes will close at the end of the month. In an email sent two weeks ago, forwarded to Arts Desk by the organizers of the Encyclopedia Show, the venue's management informed regular performers that its landlord had other plans for the property at 1400 Meridian Place NW and would not renew the Dunes' lease.

Although general manager Ra-Jah Kelly declined to speak to Arts Desk, the Dunes' team wrote in the same email that "we hope to continue our work in another location should the opportunity present itself."

Since opening in 2012, The Dunes has hosted a variety of art exhibitions, dance parties, and indie rock concerts. Wednesday's concert featuring Pree, Native America, and the Sea Life will continue as scheduled. Judson Lewis, co-producer of the Encyclopedia Show, says his show will go on after taking a brief hiatus to find a new home.

    Hi there! This blog post could not be written any better!
    Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept talking about this. I am going to forward this article to
    him. Pretty sure he'll have a very good read.
    Thanks for sharing!


    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the
    book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few
    pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.

    A great read. I'll certainly be back.
