Woodlawn Makers in the Mansion Exhibit @ Woodlawn and Pope-Leighey House
Jun 22 – Oct 22 all-day
Woodlawn Makers in the Mansion Exhibit @ Woodlawn and Pope-Leighey House | Alexandria | Virginia | United States

The Woodlawn & Pope-Leighey House historic site presents Makers in the Mansion: A Transformed African American Community at Woodlawn through the Artisan Eye, an installation that will run in the museum from June to October. The installation features works by Nicole Crowder, Morgan Davis, Sondra Barrett Hassan, Njena Surae Jarvis, Antonio McAfee, Hadiya Williams and writer-in-residence Cherryl T. Cooley. These local makers are helping to amplify the African American voice at Woodlawn through their provocative pieces inspired by Woodlawn’s transition from a large plantation to a free work colony in 1846-1860.

Woodlawn is open for tours Friday-Monday, 11:00-3:00. For more information on the exhibit, visit their website at www.woodlawnpopeleighey.org.

Want to attend the exhibit launch reception on July 18th from 5:30-8:00 p.m.? RSVP at woodlawnevents@savingplaces.org to reserve your spot!

RiverRenew Community Listening Session: Outfall 002 (S Royal St/Hunting Creek) @ St. Mary Catholic School, Multipurpose Room
Sep 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
RiverRenew Community Listening Session: Outfall 002 (S Royal St/Hunting Creek) @ St. Mary Catholic School, Multipurpose Room

In late June 2018, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality approved a plan to prevent millions of gallons of sewage mixed with rainwater from being discharged to Alexandria’s waterways via four existing outfalls. The plan, referred to as Option B+, features a new tunnel system coupled with upgrades to AlexRenew’s Water Resource Recovery Facility to capture and treat the additional flows delivered during rain events. Implementation of this plan has been referred to as Alexandria’s Wet Weather Program. In July 2018, the Wet Weather Program moniker was changed to “RiverRenew” to highlight the positive outcomes for Alexandria’s waterways as a result of the approved plan.

RiverRenew is hosting three Community Listening Sessions in September to discuss the proposed tunnel system with the community. These listening sessions are intended to bring the community up to speed on the proposed tunnel routes and facility locations, solicit feedback, and optimize the design to minimize impacts while achieving RiverRenew’s objectives.

Join the discussion.

We invite you to attend any or all of these sessions. The RiverRenew team will be on hand to discuss the program, answer your questions and receive your comments.

Events are an Open House format. Please plan on staying approximately 30 minutes.
