Washington, D.C., and its surroundings have long been home to a rich community of artists of color, including those born and raised here and others who built connections to the region while attending area art schools and universities. DMV Color features an eclectic assortment of contemporary works by women of African American, Asian American and Latina heritage with ties to the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginiaknown locally as the DMV. The artists books, graphic novels, photobooks and zines depict intimacies of family life, legacies of enslavement, dislocation tied to immigration, changes resulting from rampant development and other topics that illustrate facets of life in the DMV.
