About Washington DC

Washington DC was named after George Washington, the first president of America. The city was founded in 1790 by the Constitution of the United States with the purpose of being the capital of the nation. It had a slow start as enemy forces destroyed most of the city during the War of 1812 against Great Britain, which halted its expansion until after the war. It is now home to many historic sites and important institutions like the Washington Memorial and the White House.

The city declared the end of slavery back in 1862 and has since been known as a place of freedom and acceptance. It is an openly supportive place for LGBTQ and welcomes people from every way of life. Although it was once a small city, it is now home to the second-busiest subway system in America. With such a diverse population and interesting past, you can make a great art exhibit space in Washington DC.
