Civilian Art Projects presents photographic selections from Gesche Würfel's multi-year project Go for the Gold! The solo exhibition is a first for the artist in Washington, DC.

Go for the Gold! depicts the transformation of London's landscape in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games. A trained urban planner, Würfel began the project in 2006 as an investigation into globalization and how it disrupts relationships between residents and their natural and built environment.

Exhibition hours:
Wednesday & Saturday 1-6pm, Friday 4-8pm, and Tuesday and Thursday by appointment.
