Tomorrow, April 22nd, the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. will celebrate the opening of For the Record: Artfully Historic D.C., a juried exhibit of the 75 best original artworks that capture the changing urban landscape of Washington, D.C. Of local interest,  the exhibition includes several artworks depicting scenes at the Armed Forces Retirement Home, including two of my photographs.

The opening will run from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm, and tickets are available online in advance.

From the exhibition Website:

For more than 120 years, the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. has helped preserve depictions of the city’s built environment through paintings and photographs.

Over 100 artists submitted paintings and photographs to For the Record. A panel of nine jurors selected the top 75 artworks that will be displayed at the Historical Society’s headquarters in the Carnegie Library at Mt. Vernon Square.

The top five winning entries will be accessioned into the Historical Society’s permanent collection. All other works will be auctioned to support the organization’s collections. You can view the online auction to see all the works in the exhibition.

The competition “For the Record: Artfully Historic D.C.” was created in partnership with the DC Preservation League and the Capitol Hill Art League.
