Earlier this week, we announced the winning images of our 14th annual photo contest. We can’t wait to see all of the photos on display at Touchstone Gallery when our show opens on Wednesday, February 19. Save the date! We are also excited to announce that the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities has awarded Exposed DC (Ten Miles Square) a grant to support our annual exhibition. We’ll have more updates soon, so stay tuned.
