(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.

Korean-American artist Mina Cheon makes Polipop—that's political pop art.

Polipop and Paintings is showing at Baltimore's Maryland Art Place through the end of June.
