Christo's plans to alter the Arkansas River are showing at the National Gallery of Art.
(Dec. 2-Jan-23) Over the River
In their fifty years of marriage and artistic collaboration Christo and Jeanne-Claude have run a nylon fence through 25 miles of coastal California, wrapped the German parliament building in polypropylene and installed some 7,000 saffron gates throughout New York’s Central Park. Though Jeanne-Claude passed away in 2009 Christo is forging ahead with Over The River, a project the couple started working on in the early 90s. You can see collages depicting the plan to lay silvery panels along a 42-mile stretch of the Arkansas River through late January at the National Gallery of Art.
(Dec. 2-3) The man behind Morning Sedition
Marc Maron is a funny man. He’s a career comedian. But he has found much greater success recently as an interviewer of other comedians. Maron’s WTF? podcast - recorded out of his garage in Los Angeles - found a huge web following before landing on public and satellite radio. He’ll talk about the show while making cerebral comedic observations tonight and tomorrow at the Arlington Drafthouse.
