ANACOSTIA UNMAPPED 2.0 EXHIBITION

Anacostia Unmapped, the most popular local production on NPR in 2016, is a dynamic radio documentary series that is brought to life vividly in living color. The central work surrounds the PRNDI Award winning commentary: The Lion and the Map that launched the NPR radio documentary and brought to life by an illustrator in the form of a social art short film animation.

Anacostia Unmapped 2.0 exhibition extends the radio documentary into a mixed media and multimedia art exhibit like no other. This groundbreaking work further explores Anacostia through picturesque images by the collective Anacostia and DC artists who have captured, described and conveyed a sense of a historical time periods in Anacostia. Through narration, poetry, photographs, paintings, a short film animation. Each installation encourages the viewer to reflect on the importance of honoring everyone’s story and the impact of art and culture on our lives. #anacostiaunmapped2
