Lou Stovall: The Museum Workshop
Our goals for this exhibition are to 1) showcase the work of Mr. Stovall with an emphasis on his dedication to community-based art production; 2) highlight the history, legacy, and contributions of the Dupont Center Workshop; and 3) underscore the role that art has, and continues to play, as a catalyst for social change. We believe that these goals directly align with CWC’s mission, and given the shared history between Mr. Stovall, the Dupont Center Workshop, and the Corcoran.
Transformer20 – a special 20th anniversary exhibition to be held in the Corcoran’s historic Flagg Building, November 10 - December 10, 2022.

Shermin Ciddi, Contemporary Ottoman Miniature Artist
I am contemporary Ottoman miniature (minyatür) artist, originally from Istanbul, Turkey who was juried into the Torpedo Factory Arts Center in 2017, where I have maintained an art studio that is always open to the public. Utilizing the techniques of this largely forgotten art form, I focus on bringing to life cityscapes, local nature and symbolisms to the widest audiences I dare to reach. My greatest desire is to leave future generations a heritage that is the sum of life experiences and my personal inner world. As I continue along this journey in the ‘now’, I draw inspiration from everyday surroundings – especially clouds, birds, the blue depths of water, and the cultural inheritance of architecture in all the places I have lived in.
