As the director of the Warehouse, a longtime art space and theater in Mount Vernon Square, Molly has curated or juried many DC art shows over the years. Through the Warehouse Gallery, Molly has contributed much to the city. She has made strong connections in this community, and provided an arts center that has fostered an inspiring dialogue with and for contemporary emerging artists in the Nation’s Capital. The Warehouse Next Door has served as a venue for D.C. arts festivals ranging from FotoWeek to Sonic Circuits. Nowadays, the Warehouse acts primarily as a black-box theater and is home to The Passenger where Molly is co-owner with her son, Paul Ruppert.
The eighth-annual award is named after Alice Denney, a curator and founder of the Washington Project for the Arts.
The Washington Glass Studio is proud to have made the glass Alice Denney award for the WPA.
