Image of Washington DC Artist Aubrey of Aubrey Journal

LAPEL is a niche arts and lifestyle journal. It’s centered around independent artists who live in (or have ties to) Washington DC. If don’t know much about us, it’s not surprising. We started as a directory for established patrons of these artists, so our audience is mostly insiders. But now that you’ve been formally introduced…

There are occasional updates, but we’re not a huge operation churning out tons of content. Our main objective is to let the artists give their impressions of the world through their work. The stories, experiences and artwork they can share are far more rich and far more authentic than anything we can convey digitally.

Stay up to date with occasional updates via our newsletter. Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn by clicking the links below. Sorry, no plans for TikTok :\
