They See Us is an explorational portrait series by Isabel Manalo of her daughters Bella and Sofia ages 17 and 15 respectively, during the time of COVID. With the current state of our nation of racial unrest and a global pandemic that seems to be only getting worse in the United States, Manalo's creative response led her to paint a subject that she loves and cherishies: her daughters. Her goal is to express an emotional tenor that honors them as sisters, daughters and their own individual personalities in this ever growing unstable world we live in.

Glen Echo Park has been part of the National Park System for fifty years! The exhibit Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Glen Echo Park as a part of the National Park System will tell the story of the effort to protect land near the Potomac river from development in the nineteen sixties. Learn how the park was acquired by the federal government and how it found its direction as an art park. The exhibit will include never before exhibited photographs of the early years of the art program and of the carousel before and after its restoration. Glen Echo Park has been a great service to the community and the community has helped shape the park. Come see the exhibit and learn the story.
