Roller Derby Girls and Michael J. Fox

Eeek, feminism...

    Exhibition Picks:


  • Roller derby girls are frightening: They wear torn fishnets, have tattoos and are into feminism. But Cory Oberndorfer makes them look as sweet as ice cream in his Flashpoint exhibition, “Flavor of the Month,” a collection of candy-colored graphic art prints. At Flashpoint, until Feb. 13. [Flashpoint]
  • The Folgers Shakespeare Library offers a bootleg Newseum experience with their exhibit “Breaking News: Renaissance Journalism and the Birth of the Newspaper.” But unlike the Newseum, you don’t have to pay $20 for it. Until Jan. 31. [Folger]
  • The “Crossing Glances” exhibition is actually pretty interesting -- two photographers, one from Reims, France, and the other, from Arlington, VA, trade locations and photograph life from their hometown perspective. Surprisingly, the Frenchie didn’t hate Arlington. At Ellipse Art Center, until March 28. [Arlington Arts]


  • Museum Events:

  • Thursday, Jan. 29: How is painting Michael J. Fox so very different from painting other people or TV actors? Find out this and more at the National Portrait Gallery’s 30-minute dissection of a single photograph of Fox. [Upcoming]
  • Thursday, Jan. 29: U.S. Naval Academy professor Marcus Jones uses photography to discuss the United States' strategic bombing campaign during WWII. 6:45PM at the S. Dillon Ripley Center. [Ripley Center, Smithsonian]
  • Saturday, Jan. 31: Exactly what you needed: a $120 crash-course, all day lecture on ancient Turkish art from the Byzantine and Ottoman eras. Perfect for the person flying to Istanbul the next day to marry an art dealer, or the Lifelong Learner. [Ripley Center, Smithsonian]
