Lobby Project Closing Reception Featuring Sally Canzoneri:
Join local art lovers to celebrate the newest art installation, Changing Vistas - Changing Views, by artist Sally Canzoneri. Scientists and scholars from a variety of fields are studying cities today not as planned environments but as living systems. That means they are examining the impacts of people, animals, plants, weather, economics, geology, and geography on the look and feel of the urban environment.

In Changing Vistas—Changing Views, Sally Canzoneri takes a two-pronged approach to this subject. Her lenticular photographs of NoMa juxtapose then-and-now photographs of the same sites, provoking consideration of the long-term evolution of the neighborhood. Separately, her photographs of the Mathematica building at 1100 1st St NE propose a more immediate reflection. With its curved reflective exterior, the building interacts continuously with its surroundings, reminding us that even when an area appears built and static, it is never really still.
