M CENTRAL was a pop-up art + creative space that served as the most accessible and imaginative venue for forward-thinking artists, innovators, entrepreneurs, and public servants to convene and connect throughout Inauguration weekend in 2013. The exhibition Americana x Trains showcased work that explored the intertwined history of graffiti and rail and included artists such as Tim Conlon, Gregg Deal, Kelly Towles and Rye, while the inaugural Millennial Ball served as a replacement for the youth ball.
M CENTRAL was produced by a cross-disciplinary team of partnering organizations that include the Millennial Trains Project, a DC-based non-profit organization, No Kings Collective, and the New America Foundation, a non-partisan public policy organization.
