The Columbia Pike Documentary Project will be exhibiting new work at the Founders Gallery of George Mason University’s Arlington Campus from March 5, 2020 to April 8, 2020.

The exhibition, which highlights the people and places of the extraordinarily diverse historic Columbia Pike corridor in Arlington, Virginia, features the collaborative work of photographers Lara Ajami, Moises Gomez, Xang Ho, Dewey Tron, and Lloyd Wolf, and the work of storyteller/interviewer Sushmita Mazumdar. The exhibition is produced by the Curator of the Founders Gallery: Emma Balázs.

The compelling photographs and stories bring to life the challenges and experiences of a community undergoing rapid change. Twenty-five portraits and interviews, and twenty-five additional vivid selections from the individual photographers’ portfolios will be on display.

A beautiful book-length catalog of the exhibition Transitions: The Columbia Pike Documentary Project will premiere and be available for purchase and signing at the opening reception.

A digital projection of additional images from the documentary project will be shown at the opening event.

The work of the Columbia Pike Documentary Project is supported by Virginia Humanities and sponsored by CPRO, the Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization.

Founders Gallery is located at Van Metre Hall, George Mason University 3351 North Fairfax Drive Arlington, VA.
