RESCHEDULED DUE TO WEATHER ALERT

Arts In Foggy Bottom 



Friday, September 21st @ 11 am

Outdoor Sculpture Biennial 

As a result of the Hurricane Florence Weather Warnings the docent led tour has been rescheduled to
Friday, September 21st
.   Mary Kay Shaw will lead the tour.  “Absence and Presence” is inspired by what we can see, what is visible and invisible.  The artists have used natural elements and selected fabricated or found materials to create sculptures for contemplation.  Through their exploration of form and illusion, light and dark, metaphoric and natural elements, visitors encounter the opposites “absence and presence” and experience affirmation of human conditions.  This is a minimal walking tour in the Foggy Bottom area. Please wear comfortable shoes.

Please contact the GV office to sign up.

"Lincoln in the Bardo" by George Saunders


Lincoln in the Bardo

Lincoln in the Bardo is an astonishing feat of imagination and a bold step forward from one of the most important and influential writers of his generation. Formally daring, generous in spirit, deeply concerned with matters of the heart, it is a testament to fiction’s ability to speak honestly and powerfully to the things that really matter to us. Saunders has invented a thrilling new form that deploys a kaleidoscopic, theatrical panorama of voices to ask a timeless, profound question: How do we live and love when we know that everything we love must end?
