9/11 in print, the Baseball Project and a few nights in Neverland.
With the ten-year anniversary of 9/11 on its way, artists across the region are reflecting on the day’s tragic events and the decade of war and healing. The Washington Printmakers Gallery opens an exhibit of 9/11-inspired works today. The show features prints that were made soon after the attacks, after some reflection and in the months leading up to the anniversary.
A group of friends who also happened to be musicians from bands like R.E.M. and Minus 5 decided it was about time to rock out in honor of America’s pastime a few years ago. The result is The Baseball Project, appearing at Iota Club & Cafe in Arlington tomorrow night. Favorite teams, all-time greats and unforgettable moments from the old ball game are recalled in songs that sound a lot like anthems.
