Corcoran Celebrates WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and its Aftermath with Special Programming

This summer, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design, in conjunction with the landmark photographic exhibition WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath, presents a series of programs that enable visitors to engage with the exhibition on a personal level.

Programs, including Art Response Family Workshops; Gallery Talks; and a Visual Dialogue on Conflict from photographer Louie Palu, are designed to enrich and expand on many themes and stories about life during wartime, and encourage the personal reflection befitting of the show's emotional nature.

Additionally, on July 6, the Corcoran will mark the public opening of WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY with a FREE day of programs and workshops themed to the exhibition. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a number of events, including a workshop conducted by the Veterans Oral History Project of the Library of Congress, a film screening, and a children's workshop booth sponsored by Tragedy Assistance Programs for Survivors. A military band will be on hand to add to the spirit of the festivities. Admission is FREE and open to the public.
