  Crossing Glances, Regards Croisés; Arlington & Reims : Sister Cities
The evening of January 22, 2009 was opening night for the long-awaited exhibition Crossing Glances, Regards Croisés; Arlington & Reims : Sister Cities.

Exhibition book author Didier Rousselet writes, "two cities glance at each other, or rather each city invites one of its artists to serve as its eye on the other. A photographer comes from Reims to glance at Arlington; another comes from Arlington to do the same in Reims. And each of them returns home with his or her rich crop of photographs revealing overlooked features and hidden truths."
