Gitmo Photo Exhibit, Giant Illustrations, German String Quartet

Wonkabout
  • Christopher Sims' photographs of Guantanamo Bay are devoid of soldiers and prisoners. Rather, he captures objects and scenes of their everyday life: a Koran hangs from a fence, a drying Christmas tree is pushed to the corner of a room, an electronic menu board flashes the lunch specials. It's kind of depressing, but hopeful in the sense that one day, these things could become relics of a distant past. At Civilian Art Projects until March 14. [CAP]
  • "Here Today," an illustration exhibit featuring the large-scale works of artist Linn Meyers, feels obsessive and organic -- obsessive because her drawings are so painfully meticulous and precise, and organic because the shapes resemble topographic maps of draped fabric. At the University of Maryland Art Gallery, until March 13. [UMD]
  • Wednesday, March 11: How can DC go about creating a stronger arts community? Six of DC's art scene movers and shakers meet at the Flashpoint and discuss the issue (with your valuable input, of course). [Flashpoint]
  • Wednesday, March 11: The Leipzig String Quartet is playing at the Freer and Sackler Gallery for freez. 6:45 PM. [FSG]
  • Friday, March 13: Hooray! Someone is finally going to put the sculpture of the fat, bald, naked man into context. Local artist Zoe Charlton sheds some light on to the Hirschhorn's "Strange Bodies" exhibit. [Hirschhorn]

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
