Com­mis­sion on the Arts & Human­i­ties, WPFW FM, the Wash­ing­ton City Paper, and the focused efforts of an amaz­ing col­lec­tion of cre­ative artists, con­trib­u­tors, and venues — the ALONG CAME RA Fes­ti­val will cel­e­brate the ele­ments that always made his offer­ings so uniquely mem­o­rable and per­va­sively influ­en­tial.
