Xiomaro's Solo Photography Exhibition Examines George Washington

The free exhibition – on display from June 6 to July 31, 2021 – will be on view at the nation's first national historical park, which was established in 1933 in Morristown to preserve the site of Washington's headquarters and his troop's winter encampment of 1779-80. The large photographs are mounted against the windows of the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center, Tempe Wick Road, Morristown, for viewing outdoors in a socially-distanced setting.
