Arts Around the City

With the arrival of spring, an abundant amount of art exhibits are set to open in and around the District. Through May 1st, the Cultural Development Corporation is sponsoring a multi-venue exhibit entitled "Pop-up," in which various artists and architects where given the challenge to transform a single 10 x 10 room to reflect one of five distinct themes: live, work, play, create or connect. Tickets can be found here. For those interested in film, the Hirshhorn is hosting a viewing of Michael Snow's avant-garde structural film Wavelength on Thursday at 8 PM. For those too busy to visit a museum can still view the public exhibit by artist Peter Krsko, spanning the entire District, called Give Me a Vote. The project, which is currently being installed in various locals around the city, aims to bring awareness to voting rights in Washington, DC.
