Jul. 5-Aug. 9: The Burning of Visibility: From Reality to Dream

You can see a collection of work by French photographer Anne-Lise Large through August 9 at the Art Museum of the Americas F Street Gallery. The Burning of Visibility: From Reality to Dream features work from three series: Lost Angels, Mythology, and Margins. The artist captured the images while travelling around the United States during a three-year, self-imposed study of the "American Dream." The exhibit includes more than 30 portraits of people working toward their own notions of progress.
