OPEN HOUSE: FotoWeek Central Spain Arts and Culture + Mexican Cultural Institute – stop by these two neighboring exhibit spaces on 16th Street and check out the work on display, enjoy refreshments, etc.
EXHIBIT OPENING: What We Have Within (OAS – AMA F Street Gallery) – Art has traditionally been used to empower people and is often one of the most compelling ways of expressing ideas, especially regarding issues that seemed socially taboo. Violence faced by many persons in the Americas because of their actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity has a deep root in prejudice, discrimination and lack of societal acceptance of diversity. What We Have Within breaks that silence and allows for a discussion to begin; a discussion about our identities, our orientations, our diversity. This selection of six series includes a range of artistic approaches, from public representation, as with Barnett, Birnbaum and Allen, to those more intimate and private, as in the works of Handal, Keenan, and Paul.
