May 29-Jun. 30: The Hampton Years
Theater J presents the world premiere of The Hampton Years as part of the Locally Grown: Community Supported Art Festival. Written by Jacqueline Lawton, the play follows WWII’s impact on a Jewish refugee/painter living in the United States, and how he helped shape the lives and careers of his African American art students in the still-segregated South. Inspired by the legacy of Austrian-born artist and educator Viktor Lowenfeld, the production runs through June 30.
May 29-Jun. 30: Extraktions
You can check out a new exhibit of work by Delaware artist Ron Meick through June 30 at the Washington Printmakers Gallery in Silver Spring. In Extraktions, the artist uses the printmaking process to address a host of topics ranging from fracking, to Chinese political issues to the stock market. There will be an opening reception this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
Music: “Big [Jazz Instrumental]” by Dream Girls
Whether the decor is faux '50s silver and neon or authentic greasy spoon, diners are classic Americana, down to the familiar menu items. Rich, poor, black, white--all rub shoulders in the vinyl booths and at formica counters. We explore the enduring appeal and nostalgia of the diner.
