A Tabloid Story, Art Crimes, Rock Creek poetry and Cambodian community.
BUMP: A Tabloid Story opens today at Baltimore's Theatre Project. Set in present-day Los Angeles, the production tells the story of a party-crazy heiress who has just been released from prison. She quickly figures out that she's not the object of paparazzi affection any more and hatches a plan to get back into the limelight. It involves a new entourage, lots of drugs and a little girl, which shouldn't work out, right?
D.C. artist and illustrator Chris Bishop opens Art Crimes tonight at The Dunes Gallery on Meridian Place in Northwest Washington. Bishop uses bold outlines, bright colors and cartoon figures to pay tribute to his two true loves: pretty girls and robots.
