It’s a 3-day pop-up bo-nan-zaaaaaa! It’s clothes, it’s art, it’s food, it’s local. Who is participating? Only some of your favorites including: Civilian Art Projects, Transformer & Heiner Contemporary.
In addition to being open for business this weekend, you can also get tickets to rock-out in the same space Saturday night with locals DJ Will Eastman, Sunwolf & The Walkmen!
Already planning your post-Turkey stroll to make room for seconds? Why not take that stroll while enjoying some art?
Little known fact: Smithsonian Institution museums and the National Gallery of Art are open on Thanksgiving.
Private museums such as The Phillips Collection, The Corcoran Gallery of Art and The Kreeger Museum are closed on Thanksgiving.
Go forth and enjoy turkey and fine art (but please, no drumsticks in the museum).
No big surprise that building a memorial (or museum) in D.C. requires a lot of hoop-jumping, but if you’ve ever wondered about who controls some of the hoops, read on.
It’s that time of year again, the 10th Annual Transformer Art Auction! This is truly an event that combines the local art glitterati, too much drinking, excellent DJs and a general shit show/trainwreck of an evening…and I mean that in the best way possible. And hey, you get to bid on some cool art, get exposed to some of D.C.’s most beloved artists, and maybe even come away with some stories of your own. This “Art Prom” is definitely worth the ticket price!
Saturday, November 15, 2013 at The Corcoran Gallery of Art. $175.00 per person.
Eye-Candy Monday: Olivia Rodriguez, The Great Expedition at Curator’s Office (2013).
Today, I am too lazy to be clever; and I gotta save my energy for all the art (and music) I’m about to get up into today and tonight.
E.Brady Robinson at Addison/Ripley - LOVE her and not sure why I keep putting off her offer to photograph my desk. The desks really do say it all, especially about what the creative mind looks like in an abstract kind of way. 3-6pm at Addison/Ripley.
Winter Recap at Honfleur Gallery - If there’s ever a reason to get to SE DC, Honfleur is usually one of them. This show pulls together work by Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann and Gustavo Diaz Sosa amongst others. 5-9pm at Honfleur.
Looking Ahead at Randall Scott Projects - I don’t love a lot of the artists included in this show, but I do like James Busby, so go for him. 6-8pm at RSP on H St., NE.
MFA Open Studio at American University - See what the “kids” are up to! I don’t even know who they are, which means this could be a boom or bust event. 6-9pm at American in Upper NW.
Exposure at Catalyst Projects - This one gets a shout out specifically to support local musician (Apes, Heavy Breathing), photographer and all-around town lady creeper Amanda Kleinman. Go Kleiny! 6-9pm in Brookland, NE.
Ellington Robinson at Project 4 - This is gonna be Supreme Magnetic. It’s Ellington’s cartographic world and we’re just living in it. 6:30-9pm at Project 4 in the U St. Corridor.
Sunwolf at Comet Ping Pong - Not an art exhibit, but it is where you will find most of the artists in a kind of afterparty form. Plus, it’s Sunwolf!!! 10pm until ???
