The Dunes, in Columbia Heights, features the photography of Jocelyn Weiss. The show will be open for viewing during scheduled events taking place at The Dunes and for private viewings upon request.

“Murmur” documents some of the people that the artist met while participating as part of a 2010 medical team volunteering in Nepal, providing basic health exams to women and children in the remote village of Sabhug. The title is meant to raise awareness about the alarming incidence of heart disease in Nepal. Read more about the show.
