With a total of four visits on 4 different evenings, I began my documentation of this event on Wednesday, 17 March 2010 by first focusing on the 8th floor which highlighted artists mostly from the Washington DC metrotpolitan area.

Visit my March 2010 G40 Art Summit / Crystal City docu-project webpage to view photo albums of the three other visits that were made to floors 7, 6 and 5.
