 I was up with the moon this morning installing the AS IS please don't make fun of my crude napkin drawing of the DC map... 
 but here are the addresses of the installation sites if you care to take a treasure hunt:

1.) Magruder's (loading dock),5626 Connecticut Avenue, DC
2. ) Plaza, 7825 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda
3.) Pauls, 5205 Wisconsin Avenue, DC 
4.) The Broad Branch Market, 5608 Broad Branch Road, DC 
5.) THEARC, 1901 Mississippi Avenue, DC
6.) The Corcoran Gallery of Art, 500 17th Street, DC
7.) Maine Avenue Fish Market, 1100 Maine Ave, DC
8.) American City Diner (dumpsters), 5532 Connecticut Avenue, DC
9.) Bens Chili Bowl, 1213 U Street, DC
10.) A Mano (upper Georgetown), 1677 Wisconsin Avenue, DC

(While I wish in some ways that the project had reached into more corners of the city, AS IS developed out of the natural course of my movement through the city. This portrait project is about giving the gift of notice throughout the course of a normal day, week, month, year...wherever that time took me.)
All ten of the portraits were out on the streets by about 9:00 AM and by the time we had grabbed some breakfast, at least five were gone! 
 Can I ask you a favor? Will you keep keeps your fingers crossed and spread the word so that the other five folks find their portraits before tomorrow's rain storms? Thanks, Friends!


  1. YAY! So happy it is October 1! Congratulations on a great project.

  2. Magruder's was my first stop today. Great job, Nicole!
