Events DC Teams Up with Nationally-Acclaimed Visual Artist Naturel for Beautification of Skate Park at RFK Stadium

07/18/2017

Events DC, the official convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia, is teaming up with nationally-recognized visual artist Naturel to renovate its Skate Park at RFK Stadium (formerly known as Maloof Skate Park).  During renovation, the Skate Park will be temporarily closed beginning July 14 through August 11.

Lawrence “Naturel” Atoigue is a Maryland-native whose futuristic work—a blend of pop and cubism with a surrealist twist—quickly emerged in today’s contemporary art scene.  

The six-week beautification project seeks to increase the visibility and value of the Skate Park at RFK Stadium for public use and event space. It is the third project of several RFK Stadium Campus improvements including a bike-friendly extension of the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, installation of the 19th Street batting cages, and a temporary outdoor pole vault training facility (Skate Park-adjacent) that will remain open during the Skate Park’s closure.

Upon project completion, the Skate Park at RFK Stadium will culminate with a community unveiling event in August; details to be announced.
