Dana Jeri Maier's absurdist India ink drawings explore the inner lives and conversations of strangers, both real and imagined.
Aug. 9: Ask Roulette
Have you ever wanted to ask a stranger a random question, but held back because…you know, it’s kind of weird? Well tonight you can let your inquisitive freak flag fly at Politics and Prose, which is hosting Ask Roulette at 7 p.m. This is the event’s first time coming to D.C., and the way it works is strangers come on stage and ask each other any questions they want, in front of a live audience. Special guests will aid in the conversation, including Ask Roulette Host Jody Avirgan, Clinton Yates of the Washington Post, Linda Holmes of NPR and Dave Weigel of Slate. Musical accompaniment will be provided by Ask Roulette’s one-man house band, Eli Bolin.
Aug. 9-Sept. 14: If We Could All Agree Not to Care, We Wouldn’t Have to Do This
A new exhibition by local artist Dana Jeri Maier opens today at CulturalDC’s Flashpoint Gallery. If We Could All Agree Not to Care, We Wouldn’t Have to Do This is an installation featuring comic-book and cartoon-like illustrations that the artist created directly on the gallery walls. You can check it out through September 14.
