What could be better than buying art to help fund art programs for kids? Um, not much. You’re getting something super cool (perhaps a piece by Garth Fry, our March member artist, and his collaborator friend) while giving something back to your fellow (younger) art lovers. It makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. You’ll go to sleep knowing that you made a difference. So, go buy art, make a difference, feel good about yourself.
Capitol Hill Arts Workshop hosts life drawing sessions on Saturday afternoons! Slightly more expensive than our Tuesday night sessions (but, come on, just $7 more) and obviously lacking our Hillyer flair, CHAW’s sessions are nonetheless awesome and worth checking out if Tuesday nights are a no-go.
Tonight at 6:30, Michael Platt, Muriel Hasbun, and Gloria Kirk—three of the artists from our current exhibition “Of a Time and Place”—will be speaking in a panel on photography at The Phillips Collection. More Information here.

1610s, “the university building in Alexandria,” from Latin museum ”library, study,” from Greek mouseion ”place of study, library or museum, school of art or poetry,” originally “a seat or shrine of the Muses,” from Mousa ”Muse” (see muse (n.)). Earliest use in reference to English institutions was of libraries (e.g. the British Museum); sense of “building to display objects” first recorded 1680s.
