(September 27-October 8) STRUCTURE SCLUPTURE
Sculptor Carlina Bezzola will be with you shortly, she just needs to run and slip on something more sculpturey. Her exhibit, Structure, is a set of wearable sculptures. It’s an intersection of performance art and design that explores how we veil our vulnerabilities with our wardrobes. It’s at the University of Maryland's Stamp Gallery in College Park through October 8.
(September 27) NOW ENSEMBLE
Nothing says contemporary classical quite like [The NOW Ensemble(http://www.nowensemble.org/), performing tonight at the Strathmore Mansion in North Bethesda. The youthful chamber group walks the line between indie rock and modern classical music with the world premiere of a composition by D.C.'s Alexandra Gardner.
