"Just as the District of Columbia was carved into and out of
the borders of Maryland and Virginia, artworks have
borders that are tangible, malleable, and reaching-like
geographic boundaries. Yet they connote intangible
values and dreams and ideals-much
like the idealism that goes into creating a nation's capital.
This exhibition is about interconnections despite borders and boundaries, and of course the power of art
to create connection and beauty."
