This year, the Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture is celebrating its 20th anniversary. As we reflect on our achievements and contributions to the arts community over the last two decades, we also look ahead and consider how we can have a greater impact in the region in the decades to come. To commemorate the anniversary, we invited artists in the DC Metro area to submit works that convey their vision for the future.
The works in this exhibition explore the concept of the future from personal, cultural, social and political lenses. Through a variety of media, including but not limited to painting, drawing, sculpture, and textile work, the artists featured in this exhibition share their many different visions of what the future may hold. Some present concerns about our environment and relationship with technology, while others offer utopian visions for the way society can become more inclusive and vibrant.
Together, the works featured here invite viewers to ponder their own idea of what the future holds. What will society look like in decades to come? How would the arts impact our culture decades from now?
