Description

Please join us for an opening reception of the Everyday DC exhibition at the Southwest Arts Club on the evening of Wednesday, March 8, 2017.

“Everyday DC,” a photography exhibition on view at the Southwest Arts Club in Washington D.C., from March 1, 2017 through March 31, 2017, visualizes daily life in Washington, D.C., through the eyes of over 100 sixth, seventh and eighth grade students from eight DC public middle schools that represent all four quadrants of the city. The project aims to explore the questions, "What images come to mind when you think of Washington, D.C.? How does media representation of the District compare with the everyday experiences of youth in the District?"

The Everyday DC exhibition is the culmination of a multi-week photojournalism unit designed by the visual arts department at DC Public Schools (DCPS), DCPS visual arts educators and the Pulitzer Center. The unit, which is inspired by the Everyday Africa project from journalists Peter DiCampo and Austin Merrill and is supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, was developed to align with the National Core Arts standards and the visual arts standards developed by DCPS.

This project was funded in part by the D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information about the unit plan and exhibition, contact education@pulitzercenter.org.
