Good news: It just got a little easier to spot the Dupont Underground entrance.
Bad news: The underground art gallery’s opening date has been delayed.
Earlier this week, a bright red coat of paint was applied to the entrance doors and a nearby lamppost just north of Dupont Circle.
The sign was designed by D.C. branding agency Ripe, and the Sherwin Williams store at 2511 14th Street NW donated the red paint, says Dupont Underground Managing Director Braulio.
But Dupont residents might have to wait a little longer for that bright red entrance to swing open.
Though the Washington Post reported in May that the underground art space was aiming for a July opening, Agnese says the opening has been further delayed due to a snag in the permissions process.
“The timeline has been pushed back,” says Agnese. “Hiccups are an inevitable part of the development process, no matter how hard you try to avoid them.”
