Glenstone Pavilions Press Preview

On Friday I attended the press preview for Glenstone’s 204,000 square foot expansion, called the Pavilions, designed by Thomas Phifer, with site design by PWP Landscape Architecture. The experience exceeded all my expectations.

I’m tempted to just write the word “WOW” and call this blog post done… but let’s just say that Sony Kando Trip 2.0, surpassed all my expectations.

Rooftopping: The LINE Hotel DC x Full Service Radio

Sunday evening at the LINE Hotel DC was pretty special. Things started off at 5pm with Curry Hackett’s Express Trombone Consort performing a live set at Full Service Radio, in the hotel’s lobby, then we moved to the Monument View Master Suite, as well as the Vela Rooftop, for Full Service Radio’s end of season wrap party.

Courtesy of my friend Austin Graff, a group of us were treated to a tour of Small Planes Coffee's roastery last night. Very informative, very delicious, and very fun.
Also very caffeinated. 😅

March for Science

Chilly, rainy weather didn't keep the crowds away from the National Mall for today's March for Science. It's good to see Democracy in action.

Glenstone \\ Roni Horn

I spent the day at Glenstone yesterday for the media preview of the new Roni Horn exhibition, which opens today and runs through January 28, 2018. I can't say enough good things about Glenstone, the hospitality of their staff, and Roni Horn's work, itself.

In the Tower: Theaster Gates at the NGA

One of the absolute best things about living in DC is having access to so many museums. Even better is getting to hear the artists, themselves, discuss their work, what it means to them, and what inspired them to create it. Today I was invited to listen to Theaster Gates talk about his new exhibition at the National Gallery of Art.

Last night I was invited to the Hirshhorn for a special preview of Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors. Kusama's work is way more than the sum of its parts. I mean, I was standing there thinking, "I'm basically inside a mirrored plywood box with some lights WHY AM I FEELING SO MANY FEELINGS?"

Climate change seriousness aside, I've got Z E R O complaints about a sunny 70º day in the middle of February. Today was basically the perfect day for an Instameet with @IGDC and @VisitWashingtonDC.

This afternoon's protest was huge. I have no idea how to estimate crowd size other than to tell you I stood alongside Pennsylvania Ave. for about 20 minutes and folks kept coming past, with no end in sight.

Women's March on Washington pt2

2017: the year it finally became acceptable for people of all ages to refer to a part of woman's anatomy as a pussy in polite company and talk about golden showers in public. All because of our President's behavior.
