(July 10) Is This Art?
You ever tag along to some exhibit by some renowned abstract expressionist and stare at some shapes for a few minutes before concluding that this piece of "art" is something your three-year-old could produce with a couple of crayons and a pair of minutes? The American Art Museum feels your pain, or at least is willing to try and convince you otherwise. The museum holds a series of discussions and tours focusing on modern and contemporary art beginning with Is This Art? tomorrow evening. Respectful debate is highly encouraged.
(July 10-31) Chilly incentives
There are a lot of galleries in the District, so if you run one, you have to find some way to beat the competition--like promising cooler climes. That's the strategy Northwest Washington's Cross MacKenzie Gallery is taking this month. Hot Properties & Cool Air features the work of veteran talent and new additions displaying artwork that will take the viewer to cooler places. Plus, the air conditioning will be on.
