Cynthia Connolly

I am a photographer, artist and curator from Washington, DC. I grew up in a community of musicians and artists where we booked our own performances and produced and manufactured our own vinyl records. My art and curating are inspired by those with the energy and drive to create on their own and who are focused yet selfless in their pursuits. My philosophy is that nothing is too difficult to accomplish and if you have a great idea there is nothing that should stop you from making your idea a reality. I started by creating by own exhibitions in abandoned buildings, cafes, museums, bars, and backyards then added other artists to my exhibitions. My artwork is in many private collections, (including my artistic peers such as Michael Stipe, Nick Hornby, Gary Hustwit and Ian Mackaye) as well as the The J. Paul Getty Museum, The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Smithsonian Museum of American History, American University Museum at the Katzen, among others.  Recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts grants, I work for Arlington County, Virginia as a curator while wearing the tool belt of an artist. I continue to explore the world using art to create community, dialogue, and surprise in our everyday life.
