"Art Beat" with Sabri Ben-Achour - Wednesday, October 6, 2010
(October 6-October 30) SITAR TURNS TEN
Northwest Washington’s Sitar Arts Center teams underserved youth up with professional artists to produce original works. The center presents the inaugural Patricia Sitar Arts Expo this month in celebration of a decade of collaboration. Artists reflect on the politics and social makeup of their communities in the juried exhibit.
(October 6-30) INSTANT REMIX
Two photographers spend October shaking up some Polaroid pictures in Instantaneous at Vivid Solutions in Southeast Washington. Rachel Beamer and Lindsay Talley stymie the immediate gratification of Polaroids by spending time in post-production manipulating the shots with digital processes.
(October 7-23) SALOME
The Washington National Opera gets biblical tomorrow night at The Kennedy Center. Salome, the quintessential degenerate princess, always gets what she wants, including the head of John the Baptist on a platter. Oscar Wilde’s play is garnished with a score by Strauss on the Opera House stage until October 23.
