Feb. 28-Mar. 17: Home
When a young man from rural North Carolina tries to build a life for himself up north, he finds that city life might not be all it's cracked up to be. But through it all, the protagonist in Home never loses his positive spirit. Originally produced by The Negro Ensemble Company, the Tony Award-nominated play by Samm-Art Williams will be presented by Rep Stage through March 17 in the Studio Theatre of the Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center in Columbia.

Feb. 28-Apr. 7: Process: Photography

Process: Photography opens at the Athenaeum in Alexandria today, and will be up through April 7. The exhibit brings together a number of photographers who use more than 15 different picture-taking devices to varied effect.

Mar. 2-30: Dynamic Vision
Starting this Saturday you can head to Arts in the Village Gallery in Leesburg to see Dynamic Vision, an exhibition of photography and fused glass inspired by nature, color, and contrast.
