The Corcoran Gallery of Art / Claudia Smigrod

The Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design will open Neighborhood Watch, an exhibition of vintage and contemporary photographs by artist and Corcoran faculty member Claudia Smigrod, on July 1.

In Neighborhood Watch, Smigrod revisits the subjects she photographed for her 1989 exhibition, Portraits of Innocence, a documentation of the purity of childhood. Through a recent resurvey of the original Portraits of Innocence participants, Smigrod records the evolution of 20 individuals as she captures them within their native environments in Alexandria, VA.

Smigrod will lead a Gallery talk on the exhibition this Saturday, July 4, at 3 p.m.
