“We’re only a few days from the opening of The Triangle Known as Truxton Circle at 410 GooDBuddY (410 Florida Ave NW) on Friday the 13th from 6-8pm. But I really want to stress that we’ll have a few gallery hours including the day of the inauguration (1/20 Noon to 3PM), for locals who haven’t skipped town as well as an artists talk on February 11 from 2-4PM where we’ll explain our work in greater depth.

So what’s it about? Truxton Circle, the people and the traffic circle fountain. It is also about change and loss. My part focuses on the history of the neighborhood told through the story of maps, which show change in the neighborhood, from the physical environment to the changing demographics. With change there is loss. Ira Tattelman’s “Fountain” installation explores the lost fountain that once sat in the former Truxton Circle at North Capitol and Florida Avenue. Brian Bakke examines the people forgotten and lost in the changing landscape and tells their stories with small vignettes and etchings.”

From a press release:

“Today, Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice Kevin Donahue released information related to the September 11, 2016 officer-involved shooting. The information released today includes the body-worn camera (BWC) footage and the name of the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officer who discharged his service weapon resulting in the death of Terrence Sterling, a 31-year old resident of Fort Washington, Maryland. The release of the information was authorized by Mayor Muriel Bowser, who deemed the BWC footage to be in the public interest and consistent with the goals of the District’s BWC program to create broader accountability between law enforcement and communities, and to maintain open and transparent government.

On Sunday, September 11, at approximately 4:20 a.m., MPD officers observed a motorcycle driving erratically in the vicinity of 15th and U Streets, NW. Just before 4:30 a.m., MPD’s ShotSpotter, a technology system that can detect the sound of gunfire in an area, identified the sound of possible gunfire near 3rd and M Streets, NW. The BWC footage released today begins shortly after the shots were fired and shows the officers providing medical assistance to Mr. Sterling. (more…)
