"Freeing the Frieda in Me" (2003) is just one of the imaginative self-portraits by Holly Trostle Brigham you can expect to see in DIS/GUISE.

Jan. 15-Feb. 28: DIS/GUISE
Starting tomorrow you can visit George Washington University’s Luther W. Brady Art Gallery to see DIS/GUISE, an exhibit featuring work by Holly Trostle Brigham. The artist explores gender and sexuality through her imaginative self-portraits, such as “Freeing the Frieda in Me,” a Day of the Dead-inspired watercolor collage portrait in which she models herself after Frieda Kahlo. The collection will be up through February 28.

Jan. 16: Earplugs Optional
This Thursday you can attend Earplugs Optional, an evening of design and music at The Fillmore in Silver Spring. Hosted by the D.C. Chapter of AIGA, “the professional association for design,” the event starts at 7 p.m. and will feature a lecture from Nolen Strals and Bruce Willen of Baltimore design studio Post Typography. The award-winning designers will talk about their design process and a few projects that fell short, missed the mark or sent them back to the drawing board.
