Park West Gallery is helping bring art to the 2022 National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC—specifically, the art of famed contemporary Impressionist Daniel Wall. Park West, the world’s largest art dealer, is one of the sponsors of this year’s festival and also contributed two art installations to the 2022 Petalpalooza Art Walk.

The Art Walk culminates in the annual Petalpalooza celebration on April 16, when hundreds of thousands of visitors experience a full day of live music and engaging activities.

This day-long all-ages celebration brings art, music, and play to multiple outdoor stages, interactive art installations, a beer garden, hands-on activities, and more, all along the banks of the Anacostia River. The evening is capped by a dazzling 15-minute choreographed fireworks show set to music starting at 8:30 PM.

“Park West is thrilled to bring Daniel Wall’s breathtaking artwork to the National Cherry Blossom Festival,” said John Block, Park West Gallery’s Executive Vice President. “This is such a fantastic celebration of nature’s beauty, and we hope that everyone visiting DC during the National Cherry Blossom Festival has the chance to experience the Art Walk and see Daniel’s artwork up close.”
