Join us for the exhibition's opening reception on March 8, 2019!


Congratulations to the following artists with work selected for MISPRINTS:

MISPRINTS will be a contemporary art exhibition that celebrates the unique outcomes of a printer’s mistake on the 100th anniversary of the first airmail flight and the infamous “Inverted Jenny” stamp.” For stamp collectors, the mistakes are what make a stamp more valuable. For artists, mistakes can also be valuable—leading to new discoveries. This exhibition will lean into the positive outcome of the mistake.

This exhibition is funded in part by a grant from Anacostia Trails Heritage Area.
