IMMERSION is an interactive, multimedia installation series that will be held in 3 locations around Historic Anacostia neighborhood and offer visitors the chance to touch, create, contribute, and share.

In this first exhibition of the series, Olivia Tripp Morrow will use layers of textiles imbued with meaning from the women who donated them, to create a winding installation of colorful, abstract sculptures. These pieces literally and figuratively wrap individual experiences into a beautiful collective one. Over the course of the exhibition, the environment will grow, change, and be re-arranged.

The artist invites donations from women (anyone who identifies as a woman) of textiles (including clothing and linens) during her artist hours.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 10 am – 7 pm; and by appointment
Artist Hours: Thursdays 10 am – 2 pm; Saturdays 2 – 6 pm; Sundays 10 am – 2 pm; and by event and appointment.
