This poetic visual essay explores the changing streetscape of downtown Washington in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s through the urban street photography of Bill Barrett, Chris Earnshaw, and Joseph Mills. The works both reflect and confront each other, providing a sense of the physical and social upheavals experienced by the city in those decades. The exhibition is comprised of three sections: Mt. Vernon Squared: Fourteen striking photographs taken in the 1960s by William Edmund Barrett, Jr., document the streets radiating from Mt. Vernon Square. The images are part of the Historical Society’s Kiplinger Washington Collection. Billy Luck’s Downtown: Some 50 “drugstore” prints and a dozen enlarged, sepia reprints by self-described Cowboy Poet Chris Earnshaw capture the facades and faces of the downtown core over a 25-year period.  Inner City: Nearly 20 hand-varnished photographs by Joseph Mills present unvarnished 1980s street life from 9-to-5ers and F-Street-shoppers to the downtrodden.    In the words of photographer Chris Earnshaw: In January 2016, The Washington Post joined Chris Earnshaw for his gallery show debut at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. Earnshaw’s work is also included in District II, the follow-up exhibition presented at the National Building Museum.

The Kreeger Museum presents an intimate special exhibition, JOAN MIRÓ From The Collection of The Kreeger Museum Joan Miró was the consummate professional artist, a perfectionist, who insisted he was a “self-taught amateur” in order to secure for himself permission to transgress traditional techniques – to experiment and improvise – especially in pursuit of printmaking as a medium for his breathtaking expressions of devotion for Catalan culture. His beloved Mallorca, the sunlit island where he lived and worked after 1940, was the subject of such inventiveness. Purchased in 1973 by David and Carmen Kreeger when they attended Miró’s 80th birthday celebration in Palma de Mallorca, The Mallorca Suite is an unconventional masterpiece by one of Spain’s greatest artists, and The Kreeger Museum is believed to be the only place in the United States where a complete set of the suite may be seen. Added to the set are color states of each etching, black states and technical (or reverse) prints. Inclusion of these decompositions offers viewers the exceptional opportunity to see the work evolve, as the artist himself did in 1973. Miró saw on the pages the familiar faces of people who lived and worked, as did he, on this Mediterranean island. We are not meant to recognize them; we are only to experience delight in scrutinizing the emergence of visages we shall never know but will never forget. The etched title page and a full color gouache painting puts the exclamation point on the entire display that is The Mallorca Suite of 36 images by Joan Miró. “I make no distinction between painting and poetry. It therefore happens that I illustrate my canvases with poetic phrases and vice versa.” Inevitably his creative wanderlust led Miró to produce books, especially to illustrate the work of the many poets who had become his friends. In 1973, as a contribution to the festivities that were being prepared for his birthday commemoration, he completed a notable edition of El Vol de l’Alosa to celebrate the works of nineteen Mallorcan poets.

Baby Screams Miracle By Clare Barron Directed by Howard Shalwitz A small house is besieged by an apocalyptic storm. Great trees crack and splinter, garbage shatters windows, a deer impales the car windshield, and the wind hurls a trampoline into the living room. While their family home collapses all around them, a prodigal daughter and her zealous relatives try to pray their way to safety. Obie Award-winner Clare Barron’s new play is “a genuinely fragile, complex piece of work” (Time Out New York): a Rorschach test for the faithful and the faithless alike. You’ve never seen anyone pray quite like this. You’ve never met a family like this. But if you enter the eye of the storm with them, you might find an imperfect, harrowing miracle. Featuring company members Kate Eastwood Norris and Sarah Marshall

1:30pm – Aida’s Secrets Dir. Alon Schwarz and Shaul Schwarz (90min, Israel/USA/Germany, 2016) Documentary Izak Szewelwicz was born in the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp in 1945 and sent for adoption in Israel. Many years ago, Izak found and formed a relationship with his birth mother, but was always told that his father had died in the war. In 2013, everything he knew about his personal history changed when he tracked down his adoption files and uncovered that his father had been alive after the war and had reportedly divorced his mother. Seeking more answers, Izak located his birth certificate in Germany. He was shocked to discover another birth certificate—one of a brother he never knew existed. Filmmakers and brothers Alon and Shaul Schwarz set out to find answers for their Uncle Izak, uncovering timely questions of identity, resilience, compassion, and the plight of displaced persons as Izak and his brother Shep reunite in Canada before traveling to a nursing home in Montreal to introduce Shep to his elderly mother, Aida, for the first time.

Breastfeeding and Pumping Basics is the perfect class for working moms and dads-to-be who can’t make our Breastfeeding Basics and Breastpump Basics classes during the workday. This special class is offered at a convenient time for working families and combines the need-to-know information from both of these classes. This class teaches the basic anatomy and physiology involved in breast milk production and breastfeeding and also the basic information for choosing and then using a breast pump. Mothers will learn what to expect during the first days after birth, as well as what to do if things do not go as planned. Class will discuss what preparation and supplies are helpful. In addition, pump demonstrations will be shown and mothers will also receive instruction on pumping strategies for the early weeks. This class lays the foundation for our Return to Work class (recommended to take a few weeks before returning to work). The instructor is one of our experienced IBCLCs.

This poetic visual essay explores the changing streetscape of downtown Washington in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s through the urban street photography of Bill Barrett, Chris Earnshaw, and Joseph Mills. The works both reflect and confront each other, providing a sense of the physical and social upheavals experienced by the city in those decades. The exhibition is comprised of three sections: Mt. Vernon Squared: Fourteen striking photographs taken in the 1960s by William Edmund Barrett, Jr., document the streets radiating from Mt. Vernon Square. The images are part of the Historical Society’s Kiplinger Washington Collection. Billy Luck’s Downtown: Some 50 “drugstore” prints and a dozen enlarged, sepia reprints by self-described Cowboy Poet Chris Earnshaw capture the facades and faces of the downtown core over a 25-year period.  Inner City: Nearly 20 hand-varnished photographs by Joseph Mills present unvarnished 1980s street life from 9-to-5ers and F-Street-shoppers to the downtrodden.    In the words of photographer Chris Earnshaw: In January 2016, The Washington Post joined Chris Earnshaw for his gallery show debut at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. Earnshaw’s work is also included in District II, the follow-up exhibition presented at the National Building Museum.

Baby Screams Miracle By Clare Barron Directed by Howard Shalwitz A small house is besieged by an apocalyptic storm. Great trees crack and splinter, garbage shatters windows, a deer impales the car windshield, and the wind hurls a trampoline into the living room. While their family home collapses all around them, a prodigal daughter and her zealous relatives try to pray their way to safety. Obie Award-winner Clare Barron’s new play is “a genuinely fragile, complex piece of work” (Time Out New York): a Rorschach test for the faithful and the faithless alike. You’ve never seen anyone pray quite like this. You’ve never met a family like this. But if you enter the eye of the storm with them, you might find an imperfect, harrowing miracle. Featuring company members Kate Eastwood Norris and Sarah Marshall

Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Writer Edward Albee Director Aaron Posner An American masterpiece! George and Martha invite Nick and Honey to their home after a faculty party. What awaits their late-night guests is not a welcoming nightcap but tempestuous verbal sparring fueled by alcohol and 20 years of marital dysfunction. Filled with acerbic wit, Albee’s play is both wildly funny and heart-wrenching, exposing the fears and secrets of both couples as the lines between reality and illusion blur. Aaron Posner directs and Holly Twyford stars as Martha. Click here for ticket information.

By Mike Bartlett Directed by David Muse “But now I’m majesty, and feel the same.” act 1, scene 3 The Queen is dead. After a lifetime of waiting, Prince Charles ascends the throne with Camilla by his side. As William, Kate and Harry look on, Charles prepares for the future of power that lies before him…but how to rule? Written primarily in Shakespearean blank verse, this modern history play explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of Britain’s democracy and the conscience of its most famous family. In the wake of sensational Broadway and West End runs, Studio Theatre Artistic Director David Muse will direct the regional theatre debut of King Charles III, Mike Bartlett’s Olivier Award-winning play. Spinning a tale of modern royalty with classic poetic language, Bartlett constructs a contemporary Shakespearean drama in our immediate future.

This poetic visual essay explores the changing streetscape of downtown Washington in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s through the urban street photography of Bill Barrett, Chris Earnshaw, and Joseph Mills. The works both reflect and confront each other, providing a sense of the physical and social upheavals experienced by the city in those decades. The exhibition is comprised of three sections: Mt. Vernon Squared: Fourteen striking photographs taken in the 1960s by William Edmund Barrett, Jr., document the streets radiating from Mt. Vernon Square. The images are part of the Historical Society’s Kiplinger Washington Collection. Billy Luck’s Downtown: Some 50 “drugstore” prints and a dozen enlarged, sepia reprints by self-described Cowboy Poet Chris Earnshaw capture the facades and faces of the downtown core over a 25-year period.  Inner City: Nearly 20 hand-varnished photographs by Joseph Mills present unvarnished 1980s street life from 9-to-5ers and F-Street-shoppers to the downtrodden.    In the words of photographer Chris Earnshaw: In January 2016, The Washington Post joined Chris Earnshaw for his gallery show debut at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C.

Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Writer Edward Albee Director Aaron Posner An American masterpiece! George and Martha invite Nick and Honey to their home after a faculty party. What awaits their late-night guests is not a welcoming nightcap but tempestuous verbal sparring fueled by alcohol and 20 years of marital dysfunction. Filled with acerbic wit, Albee’s play is both wildly funny and heart-wrenching, exposing the fears and secrets of both couples as the lines between reality and illusion blur. Aaron Posner directs and Holly Twyford stars as Martha. Click here for ticket information.

By Mike Bartlett Directed by David Muse “But now I’m majesty, and feel the same.” act 1, scene 3 The Queen is dead. After a lifetime of waiting, Prince Charles ascends the throne with Camilla by his side. As William, Kate and Harry look on, Charles prepares for the future of power that lies before him…but how to rule? Written primarily in Shakespearean blank verse, this modern history play explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of Britain’s democracy and the conscience of its most famous family. In the wake of sensational Broadway and West End runs, Studio Theatre Artistic Director David Muse will direct the regional theatre debut of King Charles III, Mike Bartlett’s Olivier Award-winning play. Spinning a tale of modern royalty with classic poetic language, Bartlett constructs a contemporary Shakespearean drama in our immediate future.

This poetic visual essay explores the changing streetscape of downtown Washington in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s through the urban street photography of Bill Barrett, Chris Earnshaw, and Joseph Mills. The works both reflect and confront each other, providing a sense of the physical and social upheavals experienced by the city in those decades. The exhibition is comprised of three sections: Mt. Vernon Squared: Fourteen striking photographs taken in the 1960s by William Edmund Barrett, Jr., document the streets radiating from Mt. Vernon Square. The images are part of the Historical Society’s Kiplinger Washington Collection. Billy Luck’s Downtown: Some 50 “drugstore” prints and a dozen enlarged, sepia reprints by self-described Cowboy Poet Chris Earnshaw capture the facades and faces of the downtown core over a 25-year period.  Inner City: Nearly 20 hand-varnished photographs by Joseph Mills present unvarnished 1980s street life from 9-to-5ers and F-Street-shoppers to the downtrodden.    In the words of photographer Chris Earnshaw: In January 2016, The Washington Post joined Chris Earnshaw for his gallery show debut at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. Earnshaw’s work is also included in District II, the follow-up exhibition presented at the National Building Museum.

7:30 pm – The Last Laugh Dir. Ferne Pearlstein (85min, USA, 2016) Documentary The Last Laugh is a feature documentary that proceeds from the premise that the Holocaust would seem to be an absolutely off-limits topic for comedy. But is it? History shows that even the victims of the Nazi concentration camps themselves used humor as a means of survival and resistance. Still, any use of comedy in connection with this horror risks diminishing the suffering of millions. So where is the line? If we make the Holocaust off limits, what are the implications for other controversial subjects—9/11, AIDS, racism—in a society that prizes freedom of speech? Shot on Super 16mm, the film thoughtfully weaves together an intimate cinema verité portrait of Auschwitz survivor Renee Firestone alongside interviews with influential comedians and thinkers ranging from Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, and Gilbert Gottfried to authors Etgar Keret, Shalom Auslander, and Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League, as well as archival material ranging from The Producers and Curb Your Enthusiasm to clips of comics such as Louis CK, Joan Rivers, and Chris Rock, to newly discovered footage of Jerry Lewis’ never-released film Holocaust comedy The Day the Clown Cried to rare footage of cabarets inside the concentration camps themselves. In doing so, The Last Laugh offers fresh insights into the Holocaust in a way we haven’t seen before. Cost : $13.50

Spinning a tale of modern royalty with classic poetic language, Bartlett constructs a contemporary Shakespearean drama in our immediate future.

An adaptation created by Elevator Repair Service Based on the novel The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway Directed by John Collins “The world was not wheeling anymore. It was just very clear and bright, and inclined to blur at the edges.” The Select (The Sun Also Rises) was initially produced by Elevator Repair Service and New York Theatre Workshop. A stage littered with liquor bottles and café chairs seamlessly transforms itself from the bistros of Paris to the banks of the Irati River; a long bar table roars to life and charges a champion matador; an out-of-control dance party takes off during a night of nonstop revelry. As the story winds its way through France and Spain and lands in Pamplona where bullfighting and the fiesta rage in the streets, Hemingway’s narrator carries the heavy burdens of a war injury and his inability to have the woman he loves; a woman whose amorous escapades he follows with bemused but painful fatalism. Created by acclaimed theatre ensemble Elevator Repair Service, The Select (The Sun Also Rises) is the third in a trilogy of literary adaptations along with Gatz (The Great Gatsby) and The Sound and the Fury. Following the success of Headlong’s 1984 and the National Theatre of Scotland’s Dunsinane, STC presents another innovative production that reimagines a classic story through the fusion of artistic forms. The Select (The Sun Also Rises) is a co-production of Elevator Repair Service and New York Theatre Workshop. It was commissioned by the Ringling International Arts Festival, John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, FL, in association with the Baryshnikov Arts Center, New York, NY; the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival with funding from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Theatre Initiative; ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage, Boston, MA; and Festival Theaterformen Hannover/Braunschweig

This poetic visual essay explores the changing streetscape of downtown Washington in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s through the urban street photography of Bill Barrett, Chris Earnshaw, and Joseph Mills. The works both reflect and confront each other, providing a sense of the physical and social upheavals experienced by the city in those decades. The exhibition is comprised of three sections: Mt. Vernon Squared: Fourteen striking photographs taken in the 1960s by William Edmund Barrett, Jr., document the streets radiating from Mt. Vernon Square. The images are part of the Historical Society’s Kiplinger Washington Collection. Billy Luck’s Downtown: Some 50 “drugstore” prints and a dozen enlarged, sepia reprints by self-described Cowboy Poet Chris Earnshaw capture the facades and faces of the downtown core over a 25-year period.  Inner City: Nearly 20 hand-varnished photographs by Joseph Mills present unvarnished 1980s street life from 9-to-5ers and F-Street-shoppers to the downtrodden.    In the words of photographer Chris Earnshaw: In January 2016, The Washington Post joined Chris Earnshaw for his gallery show debut at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. Earnshaw’s work is also included in District II, the follow-up exhibition presented at the National Building Museum.

The Kreeger Museum presents an intimate special exhibition, JOAN MIRÓ From The Collection of The Kreeger Museum Joan Miró was the consummate professional artist, a perfectionist, who insisted he was a “self-taught amateur” in order to secure for himself permission to transgress traditional techniques – to experiment and improvise – especially in pursuit of printmaking as a medium for his breathtaking expressions of devotion for Catalan culture. His beloved Mallorca, the sunlit island where he lived and worked after 1940, was the subject of such inventiveness. Purchased in 1973 by David and Carmen Kreeger when they attended Miró’s 80th birthday celebration in Palma de Mallorca, The Mallorca Suite is an unconventional masterpiece by one of Spain’s greatest artists, and The Kreeger Museum is believed to be the only place in the United States where a complete set of the suite may be seen. Added to the set are color states of each etching, black states and technical (or reverse) prints. Inclusion of these decompositions offers viewers the exceptional opportunity to see the work evolve, as the artist himself did in 1973. Miró saw on the pages the familiar faces of people who lived and worked, as did he, on this Mediterranean island. We are not meant to recognize them; we are only to experience delight in scrutinizing the emergence of visages we shall never know but will never forget. The etched title page and a full color gouache painting puts the exclamation point on the entire display that is The Mallorca Suite of 36 images by Joan Miró. “I make no distinction between painting and poetry. It therefore happens that I illustrate my canvases with poetic phrases and vice versa.” Inevitably his creative wanderlust led Miró to produce books, especially to illustrate the work of the many poets who had become his friends. In 1973, as a contribution to the festivities that were being prepared for his birthday commemoration, he completed a notable edition of El Vol de l’Alosa to celebrate the works of nineteen Mallorcan poets.

The Kreeger Museum presents an intimate special exhibition, JOAN MIRÓ From The Collection of The Kreeger Museum Joan Miró was the consummate professional artist, a perfectionist, who insisted he was a “self-taught amateur” in order to secure for himself permission to transgress traditional techniques – to experiment and improvise – especially in pursuit of printmaking as a medium for his breathtaking expressions of devotion for Catalan culture. His beloved Mallorca, the sunlit island where he lived and worked after 1940, was the subject of such inventiveness. Purchased in 1973 by David and Carmen Kreeger when they attended Miró’s 80th birthday celebration in Palma de Mallorca, The Mallorca Suite is an unconventional masterpiece by one of Spain’s greatest artists, and The Kreeger Museum is believed to be the only place in the United States where a complete set of the suite may be seen. Added to the set are color states of each etching, black states and technical (or reverse) prints. Inclusion of these decompositions offers viewers the exceptional opportunity to see the work evolve, as the artist himself did in 1973. Miró saw on the pages the familiar faces of people who lived and worked, as did he, on this Mediterranean island. We are not meant to recognize them; we are only to experience delight in scrutinizing the emergence of visages we shall never know but will never forget. The etched title page and a full color gouache painting puts the exclamation point on the entire display that is The Mallorca Suite of 36 images by Joan Miró. “I make no distinction between painting and poetry. It therefore happens that I illustrate my canvases with poetic phrases and vice versa.” Inevitably his creative wanderlust led Miró to produce books, especially to illustrate the work of the many poets who had become his friends. In 1973, as a contribution to the festivities that were being prepared for his birthday commemoration, he completed a notable edition of El Vol de l’Alosa to celebrate the works of nineteen Mallorcan poets.

Baby Screams Miracle By Clare Barron Directed by Howard Shalwitz A small house is besieged by an apocalyptic storm. Great trees crack and splinter, garbage shatters windows, a deer impales the car windshield, and the wind hurls a trampoline into the living room. While their family home collapses all around them, a prodigal daughter and her zealous relatives try to pray their way to safety. Obie Award-winner Clare Barron’s new play is “a genuinely fragile, complex piece of work” (Time Out New York): a Rorschach test for the faithful and the faithless alike. You’ve never seen anyone pray quite like this. You’ve never met a family like this. But if you enter the eye of the storm with them, you might find an imperfect, harrowing miracle. Featuring company members Kate Eastwood Norris and Sarah Marshall

An adaptation created by Elevator Repair Service Based on the novel The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway Directed by John Collins “The world was not wheeling anymore. It was just very clear and bright, and inclined to blur at the edges.” The Select (The Sun Also Rises) was initially produced by Elevator Repair Service and New York Theatre Workshop. A stage littered with liquor bottles and café chairs seamlessly transforms itself from the bistros of Paris to the banks of the Irati River; a long bar table roars to life and charges a champion matador; an out-of-control dance party takes off during a night of nonstop revelry. As the story winds its way through France and Spain and lands in Pamplona where bullfighting and the fiesta rage in the streets, Hemingway’s narrator carries the heavy burdens of a war injury and his inability to have the woman he loves; a woman whose amorous escapades he follows with bemused but painful fatalism. Created by acclaimed theatre ensemble Elevator Repair Service, The Select (The Sun Also Rises) is the third in a trilogy of literary adaptations along with Gatz (The Great Gatsby) and The Sound and the Fury. Following the success of Headlong’s 1984 and the National Theatre of Scotland’s Dunsinane, STC presents another innovative production that reimagines a classic story through the fusion of artistic forms. The Select (The Sun Also Rises) is a co-production of Elevator Repair Service and New York Theatre Workshop. It was commissioned by the Ringling International Arts Festival, John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, FL, in association with the Baryshnikov Arts Center, New York, NY; the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival with funding from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Theatre Initiative; ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage, Boston, MA; and Festival Theaterformen Hannover/Braunschweig.
