In celebration of LEON opening their third Washington, DC restaurant at 1350 I Street NW the eatery known for “naturally fast food” is now showcasing local artist Michael Crossett.
LEON has partnered with long-standing non-profit CulturalDC to commission the Michael Crossett installation.
Michael Cossett’s mixed-media masterpiece celebrates LEON food, sustainability goals and celebration of the soul of DC.
“My recent work has focused on the neighborhoods of DC. As DC continues to transform, I am drawn to the contrast of historic and contemporary architecture and design, commercialism, and the energy that surrounds me.”Michael Crossett
Michael Crossett is a mixed media artist and designer living in Washington, DC. He received a BS in Advertising and Marketing at George Mason University in 1997 and from 2007 – 2010 he studied at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC focusing on printmaking, bookmaking and graphic design.
His experience living and traveling abroad has created a life-long fascination with urban life, different cultures and contemporary design. Michael creates vibrant, layered compositions using digital photography and screen printing. He is now beginning to experiment with 3D elements incorporating laser cut objects, concrete and metal in to his work.
The Franklin Square restaurant location illustrates LEON’s commitment to the market via rapid expansion (this is the third location in 14 months, with another opening in the Mosaic District this winter).
