The exhibition is organized in conjunction with the museum's 45th anniversary. "Reclaiming the Edge" draws upon research on the history, public use, and attitudes toward the Anacostia River and its watershed, and on review of urban waterway developments in other cities across the globe. “Reclaiming the Edge” explores various issues regarding human interaction with natural resources in an urban setting. It looks at densely populated watersheds and rivers as barriers to racial and ethnic integration, as well as examines civic attempts to recover, clean up, re-imagine, or engineer urban rivers for community access and use.

MHP's short documentary ANACOSTIA PADDLE follows members of the DC Green Corps on a daylong exploration of the Anacostia River. Anacostia Paddle is one of six short documentaries MHP has produced about the DC Green Corps since 2010. MHP is also in production on a feature-length documentary about the Green Corps, with an anticipated 2013 release.

“Reclaiming the Edge” will be located in the Main Gallery and runs October 15, 2012 – August 18, 2013. For more information on the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum, visit http://anacostia.si.edu. For more information on the Green Corps documentary film, click here.
