52nd Annual Flores-Gambino Family Memorial Day Picnic

2017 marks the 52nd annual celebration of the Flores-Gambino Family Memorial Day Picnic, in the Penrose neighborhood, just off Columbia Pike. 

Thanks again to Maria Flores, Joe Flores, Maria "Pete"Durgan, and the whole Flores-Gambino clan, who have lived in the same Arlington neighborhood since the 1920's. Great hosts, they know how to create a real homegrown patriotic community/family party, and have been doing so every year since 1965.

Fifteen prints by Columbia Pike Documentary Project photographer Lloyd Wolf have just been installed in the new offices of the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH). The work was beautifully prepared and placed by Artists Circle Fine Art.

The concept was to portray the diversity of the community APAH serves, to visually remind staff and visitors of who benefits from the work of the organization.

We are proud and happy that our work documenting the citizens of our community has found such a useful and appropriate home.

Thank you to Kim Painter, Nina Janopaul, and Laura London of APAH.

New exhibition suite at the Arlington Mill Community Center

James Halloran, Arlington County's Community Arts Programmer, has just installed nineteen images from the CPDP collection on the fifth floor of Arlington Mill Community Center

Jim shared this about the new installation process:  "Many people in the halls were commenting.  I must say I almost think the exposure is better in the hallway!  I think it’s more accessible as many people commented. My favorites: 'That’s my Country!' and  'I know him!'"

Thanks to Jim, and to Patrick Mallen, and the rest of the staff at the AMCC.

Here are teaser views of the installation that were sent to us. 

Go visit this selection of work in its new space - and enjoy.
