(May 16-27) Occasional Acts of Art

Peter Loge has been a political strategist on Capitol Hill for a couple of decades. When he's not advising members of the House and Senate, he's making assemblage art out of found objects. Loge uses photo negatives, lights, and boxes to draw attention to the randomness of our world. His latest work is showing at the Foundry Gallery in Dupont Circle through May 27.

(May 15-June 30) Polipop & Paintings

Korean-American artist Mina Cheon makes Polipop—that's political pop art. Her sizable digital paintings use strong primary colors and eye-catching images to critique the East's relationship with the West and the Asian media's coverage of political conflicts. Polipop and Paintings is showing at Baltimore's Maryland Art Place through the end of June.

(May 14-18) Transforming War and Trauma Experiences

Veterans cope with trauma from our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan through art this week at a number of venues in and around Washington. Arts, Military + Healing brings visual art, performance and workshops to the Library of Congress, the National Air and Space Museum, and George Mason University among others.
