(Washington, DC) – Tomorrow, Mayor Muriel Bowser will join the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities to announce two new innovative arts resources; a mapping tool that will pin-point and catalogue the District’s cultural assets, and “District Innovation Zones” which will test new ideas, conceptual art projects, and technologies. Both are aimed to support local artists and the District’s creative economy. Members of the cultural community will be presented with a demo of the new mapping tool and have the opportunity to navigate it themselves. The announcement is part of  InnoMAYtion, a pioneering initiative launched by Mayor Muriel Bowser that will showcase innovative programs during the month of May that create jobs, engage residents and position the District as a hub for innovation.
