Art house destroyed in a fire

mosaice599d3bee448c44e3e9dc4dbce04b1b3519b0c44Last night as I was riding home on the metro and I looked to the left and saw tons of smoke, fire engines and the street blocked off. I had no idea the beautiful home of the Peggy Cafritz, founder of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts was on fire and had burned to the ground! I just read the feature on her house in O, The Oprah Magazine that showcased her priceless collection of artwork by young DC artists of color whom she has long supported. I remember thinking what an amazing home and collection. It’s a very sad loss.
