This one of many images that Victoria Pickering captured of new installation by the Charles Bergen Studio. The team of artists were selected by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities to create the Chinatown DC Barnes Dance Artwork. Pickering’s photo is a striking and well-composed image that gives a glimpse of the intriguing installation.
The angle in which Victoria Pickering photographed this scene is magnificently puzzling, and documents the installation of Living Time Line: Paul Robeson last Saturday on a U St. alleyway in D.C. Muralist Cory L Stowers received a commission from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities to create this work, which depicts the life of Paul Robeson. Pickering notes that the mural “contains an image recognition technology which triggers access to rich content, and is the first use of this technology for an outdoor mural.”
