Apr. 19-May 24: Visual Musings on a Search for Peace

Starting today you can see a collection of mixed-media glass wall sculptures by Corinne Whitlatch at The Jerusalem Fund Gallery in D.C. The pieces in Visual Musings on a Search for Peace were inspired by the artist's visits to the Middle East, and many include shards of glass, iron and pottery that the artist picked up during her travels. The exhibit will be up through May 24.

Apr. 19-Jun. 2: Wallenstein

Peace is great, but how about a little drama? You can check out Robert Pinsky's adaptation of Wallenstein by German author Friedrich Schiller at The Shakespeare Theatre Company's Sidney Harmon Hall. Steve Pickering plays Wallenstein, the esteemed Bohemian general who follows the stars. But when he decides to obey his heart instead of the government, his peers and troops begin to question whether their general is an honorable hero or a traitor. The play is directed by Michael Kahn and performed in repertory with Shakespeare's Coriolanus through June 2.
