Feb. 8-Mar. 9: Wearing Ethereal
Starting today you can check out a new series of photographs and sculptures by local artist Jimmy Miracle. Wearing Ethereal will be up through March 9 at CulturalDC's Flashpoint Gallery. The exhibit features a dozen photos of installations that the artist crafted on a beach using discarded materials, such as bottle caps, plastic cutlery, and feathers.  There will be an opening reception tonight from 6 to 8 p.m.

At 8 p.m. tonight and tomorrow you can see the Mark Morris Dance Group on stage at George Mason University's Center for the Arts. The performances mark the D.C.-area premieres of three pieces of choreography: "The Office," "Socrates" and "Festival Dance." And if you arrive 45 minutes early, ticket holders can attend a free pre-performance discussion.
