Exhibition opening featuring works by Ellington alumni (up for bid) and works from the Peggy Cooper Cafritz Collection (for viewing purposes only)
Artistic bazaar with shopping from local vendors
Activated tour where Ellington students bring the art within the building to life
Legacy conversation panel discussion featuring faculty and alumni from the early years of Ellington
The inaugural Ellington Honors Awards
After party in vintage black-and-white style.
