Thank you, end of a long run.

After almost a year and a half, the Living Diversity exhibition in the pop-up gallery at the Arlington Mill Community Center (AMCC) has come down, to be moved to two new spaces along Columbia Pike next month.

Abut half the work will return to its original home in the offices of CPRO, the Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization, and the other half will be moved to a fifth floor exhibition space at the AMCC. The work will still have a home and a presence along the Pike.

Thank you to the whole community, and to the many people who have supported the work of the Columbia Pike Documentary Project and made this exhibition possible.

Notable and special thanks are due to Susan Soroko of Arlington Economic Development, Takis Karantonis, former director of CPRO, Cecilia Cassidy and Amy McWilliams, the current director and associate director of CPRO, Patrick Mallon, the director of AMCC, Tim Stroble and Charles Eby of AMCC, Jim Halloran, Arlington's community art programmer (who will reinstall the AMCC show next month), David Bearinger of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, Emma Violand-Sanchez, former Arlington County School Board chair, the Arlington County Board, Wanda Pierce, outgoing director of the Arlington Community Foundation, and the talented photographers who created the work: Duy Tran, Paula Endo, Aleksandra Lagkueva, Xang Mimi Ho, and Lloyd Wolf.
