(July 23-Aug. 3) The Cradle Project

Artists from around the District and across the country recycled wood, metal, glass, and other materials to make cradles this year. The result is The Cradle Project, showing through early August at the Washington Studio School in Northwest. Twenty-five empty cradles serve as reminders of the countless children who have grown up parentless due to the AIDS epidemic.

Doing something to benefit AIDS prevention and education is on occasion as easy as heading to the theater. Today's one of those occasions.

(July 24) The Renegades

When local author Tom Young isn't writing books he's serving with the Air National Guard in Afghanistan. Tomorrow night he discusses his latest work of fiction about our conflict in that country at the National Press Club in Northwest.
