Event Details

Hillyer presents Tyra Mitchell’s first solo exhibition, “Raising Your Youth.” Inspired by family photo albums from the 1970’s-90’s, Mitchell has cast many different families that are native to Washington, DC featuring portraits of parents with their children, siblings, and single parents with their babies. She aims to tell their stories of growing up in DC and how they are currently navigating through their heavily gentrified hometown, all while capturing the beauty that still resides in a city once known as the “Chocolate City”. (Suggested donation: $8)

Exhibit opens on June 1.
