First Impressions

The public is invited to attend an exhibition, gallery talk and opening reception for “First Impressions” on Friday, June 3 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the CFA Downtown Studio at 113 4th St. NW. The exhibition is curated by Billie Crouse, Jana Gottshalk, Jessica Hubbard Marr, Anikke Myers and Elizabeth Shores.

“First Impressions” includes never before seen photographs and ephemera from the personal archive of architect Stanley Allen Moe. Moe began keeping a journal at the age of eleven and maintained comprehensive documentation of his life in both image and text. He was founding partner of DMJM, now known as AECOM, one of the largest architectural, planning, and engineering firms in the world.

Moe developed over two-dozen foreign operations globally, and worked extensively with the US space programs on such vehicles and systems as the Atlas, Thor, Jupiter, Titan I, space shuttle, and lunar excursion module. This collection of personal photographs is part of the ongoing research and development of the Stanley A. Moe memoirs.

“First Impressions” will be held at the CFA Downtown Studio through Saturday, June 11. Gallery hours are Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or by appointment.

In addition, a concert will be held June 7 at 7 p.m. by the NM Contemporary Ensemble.
