Spotlighting the Art and Activism of Leonard Bernstein

Saturday, March 3, 2018
Atlas Performing Arts Center Washington, DC, United States

The Atlas is thrilled to be partnering with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in celebration of the Leonard Bernstein Centennial. Many of our Intersections Artist will present work inspired by Bernstein and his work as a humanitarian, activist, and artist.Founded in 2009, INTERSECTIONS is a multi-day multi-arts festival that offers a kaleidoscope of perspective on our world. Inspired by Bernstein’s call to “make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before,” festival programming gives emphasis to artists and arts groups who embrace all the arts as social action – as a unifying response to division and injustice. This emphasis will culminate in over a dozen tributes to Bernstein through arts lobby activation, family events, movement, story, sound and beyond.
