Visiting Artist: Charlotte Dumas

Thursday, October 18 at 7 p.m.

Pre-registration encouraged

Charlotte Dumas travels the world making evocative formal portraits of animals. She typically works in series, portraying animals characterized by their utility, social function, or by the way they relate to people. For her current Corcoran exhibition, Charlotte Dumas: Anima, she photographed the burial horses of Arlington National Cemetery. These Army horses, which belong to the Old Guard—the 3rd Infantry Regiment—carry soldiers to their final resting place in traditional military funerals.

Online registration for this program is now closed. Tickets will be available at the door of the auditorium one half hour before the program begins, at 6:30 p.m.
