Block Watch by Amanda Burnham @ Smithsonian Anacostia Museum

  • Smithsonian's Anacostia Community Museum (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Block Watch is a participatory community art project meant to weave together imagery culled from archival photographs as well as the present physical landscape of Anacostia to create a playful, abstracted representation of the community, its history, and its future. The public is invited to embed their own words and images related to their personal experiences of the community into the work's three dimensional, collaged layers of drawings to create a tapestry of voices in vignettes throughout the bold, broad structural lines of the piece.”
