Close-up photo of "A world Lost: after the original island, single land mass fractured,
after populations migrated, after pollution revealed itself and as cultural
locations once separated merged, after the splitting of Adam and Eve, Shiva
and Shakti, of race black and white, of culture East and West, after animals
diminished, after the seas’ corals did exterminate, after this and at last
imagine all water evaporated…this after Columbus found it we lost it
imagine this"

Jul. 24-Jun. 8, 2014: A world Lost
You can see a site-specific installation that stitches together the themes of mobility, globalization and ecology. “A world Lost” features a large metal dome adorned with objects such as black horns and light bulbs, suspended above a winding trail of materials, symbolizing a river. Artist Rina Banerjee says the work speaks to the idea that each person's domain is not defined by geopolitical boundaries. “What’s yours is the universe. It’s a very exciting very large space, and certainly can accommodate anyone’s desire to hold a lot of space for themselves.” You can see “A world Lost” through June 8 at the Smithsonian’s Sackler Gallery.

Jul. 25: Mandy Harvey
You can see jazz vocalist Mandy Harvey tomorrow night at The Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage at 6. Despite losing her hearing, the singer continues to tour all over the country and will be performing a free concert to commemorate the 23rd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Music: “Moon River” by Relaxing Instrumental Jazz Ensemble
