Project 4 and The Pink Line Project present LUSTER an evening of decadence to benefit emerging art and music in Washington DC. The event will feature cocktails, live music, and an art exhibition that explores ideas of luxury and excess amid the debris of an abandoned brake shop.

The questioning of high-end retail and luxury goods has become a strong current in contemporary art and culture – specifically focusing on the obsession with consumption and luxury in America. The artists featured here incite this contemplation, using the tools of commercialism and the allure of gold to appeal to your desires as a consumer.

At a time when it is more important than ever to support and promote a creative culture in Washington, this collaboration expands the reach of contemporary art by redefining the notion of what is art. We believe that everyone’s life can be enriched and transformed by the arts and we intend to set the gold standard for raising awareness about contemporary art.
Project 4 is a new voice in the growing Washington D.C. art scene. The gallery's programming promotes an international, forward-thinking exhibition schedule of contemporary art and design. Focusing on one-person shows and thematic exhibitions by mid-career and emerging artists, the gallery also invites guest curators to host exhibitions emphasizing trends in contemporary art and design. It is, in effect, a room for art and ideas spanning a range of cultural issues.

The Pink Line Project supports outstanding artists who contribute to excellence in the arts in Washington, DC. Founded by Philippa P.B. Hughes, The Pink Line Project fosters intellectual and artistic innovation through programs and events that are fueled by the transformative power of art.
