February Fun

Your winter has been activated. Yes, there are plenty of ways to get into the holiday spirit but there are so many other seasonal activities. You really don’t want to miss a bite or a light ~

NEW: Art as Impact 
Eaton DC has created a new monthly series called “Art As Impact” which brings an array of artists to connect different issues and mediums in order to build an understanding of how art impacts change. Spots can be reserved here. The next couple of months' events include: 

  • March: Mark Tilsen, poet from Rapid City, South Dakota 
  • April: Alejandro Gallardo, photographer, from Santiago, Chile
  • May: Ọmọlará Williams McCallister, Performance Artist from Baltimore, Md.
  • June: Joel Garcia, visual artist from Havana, Cuba

Artechouse has a new exhibition, Intangible Forms, that is now showing. The exhibition blurs the lines between what is real, what is not, and what it means to be human. Powered by choreographed kinetic lasers, strobes, haze, and moving lights, this multi-sensory exhibition is dramatic, visceral, and operatic in nature. Throughout multiple rooms of installations, intentional minimalism and repetitive, modular rhythms create a hypnotic, entrancing environment where the intangible can become tangible. 1238 Maryland Avenue SW;
