Nov. 12-Dec. 21: Losing Something You Never Had

Artist Benjamin Bellas never got the chance to meet his uncle. The man was lost at sea during the Vietnam War, and years later his name was accidentally omitted from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Losing Something You Never Had includes sculptures, videos, artifacts and photos that relate to the fallen soldier. By displaying his uncle's personal effects and documents related to his disappearance, Bellas explores the topics of loss, absence, and searching. You can view Losing Something You Never Had at CulturalDC's Flashpoint Gallery through December 21.

The company opens Romeo & Juliet on Thursday, with performances running through Sunday. The classic story of love, loss and loyalty features choreography by Helgi Tomasson and music by Sergei Prokofiev.
