Earth as Art brings extraordinary satellite images of our planet to the Library of Congress for the next year.
(June 1-13) DC + JUNE = JAZZ
June begins Wednesday and so does the D.C. Jazz Festival. Soloists, ensembles, orchestras and Bobby McFerrin will be hard to miss over the next 13 days, with performances in the District's restaurants, galleries, theaters and parks. You can get started with the Berklee World Jazz Octet Wednesday night at the Kennedy Center.
(June 1) RISKY BUSINESS
Art can be something of a risky business. The risks involved are discussed in "Walking Off the Artistic Cliff" Wednesday night at Brentwood Arts Exchange. A panel of professors and curators explores what it takes to commit to the unknown and the known unknowns.
(June 1-May 2012) EARTH AS ART
If you're not into walking off cliffs of any sort, but appreciate the look of them, "Earth as Art" at the Library of Congress might be the exhibition for you. Extraordinary images of our planet taken from outer space are on display until this time next year thanks to the U.S. Geological Survey.
