Feb. 21-Mar. 29: The Hero and the Villain
The Hero and the Villain, an installation by Baltimore-based artist Cindy Cheng, goes on view today at CulturalDC's Flashpoint Gallery, where you can check it out through March 29. By juxtaposing drawings with everyday objects such as bottle caps, orange peels and rocks, the artist attempts to compare and contrast the mythology of heroes and villains, their transformative journeys, and their impact on the land. An opening reception will be held tonight from 6 to 8.

Feb. 22-23: Mark Morris Dance Group

The program includes the D.C. area premieres of three works: “A Wooden Tree,” “Jenn and Spencer” and “Crosswalk.” There will be a discussion 45 minutes prior to each performance.
