Charles Sandison projects emotions all over the walls at Corcoran Gallery of Art.
(July 22-Aug. 6) No Nic Cage this time
Up and coming actors from Montgomery County open City of Angels tomorrow at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. Youth from the Wildwood Summer Theatre stage the Broadway musical about a naïve screenwriter attempting to navigate through Hollywood as his characters succumb to classic film noir plot twists. The film scenes are in black and white and the real world stuff is in vibrant live Technicolor.
(June 21-Aug. 14) It was emotional
There’s more vibrant color being projected all over the walls of Northwest Washington's Corcoran Gallery of Art in Rage, love, hope, and despair. Scottish-born artist Charles Sandison wrote computer code to simulate patterns of human emotion. Seas of color-coded words like 'hate' and 'life' actually respond to each other throughout the exhibition space until mid-August.
(July 21) The cat's meow
If you're a cat person and a camp person you might enjoy 1942's Cat People screening tonight at the American Art Museum. The horror film finds a mysterious Serbian woman ambling through life believing she'll turn into a cat if she loses control of her emotions.
