HERITAGE: Native Washingtonian, featuring Gloria Kirk, Photographer and Mixed-Media Artist

"The American University and The Anacostia Community Museum partnered to create a joint community storytelling film initiative regarding neighborhood change and what it has meant for our lives, family or community. They chose a cross section of people born in DC to tell their stories. Gloria Kirk was chosen as a participant and her portion is entitled Heritage. The film was screened at American University on Wednesday, October 26, 2016. Shalom Rosenberg was the graduate student assigned to work with Gloria. Dr. Nina Shapiro-Perl, the Filmmaker in Residence at American University, was in charge of the project."

"DC photographer and mixed-media artist, Gloria Kirk, joins Digital Diaspora Family Reunion (DDFR) at the American Film Institute's Silverdocs Film Festival in Silver Spring, Maryland. She gives an exclusive look at some of her artwork as well as her family album, which became a big inspiration for her large body of work.

Both of her photographic and mixed-media works are influenced by life experiences and take on themes of spiritual and personal identity, as well as local and international significance."
