A photography exhibition by Marvin Bowser is now on display at the Thurgood Marshall Center, 1816 12th Street, NW, Washington, DC. Entitled, Color, Light and Movement, the exhibit is a collection of vibrant images from across the African diaspora. The photographs are a passport to another world. The exhibition is up through October 1, 2019.

The Thurgood Marshall Center has long been an anchor in the Cardozo/Shaw Community providing conscious programming and activities as well as a home for local education-based businesses and non-profits.

Bowser is a native Washingtonian actor and photographer. He also writes about LGBTQ issues.

Marvin, in earlier chapters of his live, served ten years’ active duty in the Air Force, six years as a Navy civilian and 18 years as a defense contractor. He continues to travel extensively and takes his cameras with him.

The exhibition was organized through a partnership between Heritage Gallery at the Thurgood Marshall Center, a visual arts and historical gallery, and Social Impact Arts Collective, a local curatorial service.
