Join us TONIGHT 5-8 p.m. to see 150 (!) photos in our new exhibit at the Crystal City FotoWalk. We have images by 12 local photographers whose work we’ve been following for years and are very proud to display in series. The Crystal City BID makes these exhibits possible, and will provide a wonderful opening reception for us tonight with an open bar and lots of snacks. Here’s a map of the photographers, and a map for parking. The FotoWalk is right above the Crystal City metro. See you there!

(The Tribune photographer, Brian Cassella, totally planned the Fibonacci spiral.)
