Free For All: Arts Day, Murderous Bike Tour
THEARC Arts Day
The Levine School of Music, Washington Ballet and Corcoran Gallery have come together for the fourth year now to put on the annual THEARC Arts Day. Located at 1901 Mississippi Avenue, SE, (about a half mile walk from the Southern Avenue metro) the festivities will begin at 10:00 a.m. and run until 2:00 p.m. this Saturday. There will be an African Harvest Dance workshop, a hands on print making workshop, a magic show (gasp!) and some live jazz with the Matt Dievendorf trio. What’s better than hanging out at a family atmosphere, listening to some smooth jazz, preparing for your Halloween night?
Murderous Bike Tour!
Keep yourself in the spooky Halloween mindset all Saturday long. Grab your bike and head down to the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Plaza at 1:00 p.m. for a three hour bike tour about murders in the D.C. area. You’ve heard of Lizzie Borden, Jack the Ripper, and Charles Manson, but did you know they had something to do with D.C.? Spooky!
Louis Stroller played the role of producer in a great number of films. He was the executive producer of Scarface back in 1983, Carlito’s Way in 1993 and The Rock in 1996. Yep, this guy was behind it all, and he’s coming to speak at the Library of Congress next Monday at 2:00 p.m. for a free discussion of the film industry and his current projects. Head to their website for more information.
William Wiley: Filmworks
This Thursday at the American Art Museum (8th and F Streets, NW), art fans will get to see a different side of William Wiley, who is best known for his painting and sculpting. In his spare time, though, he managed to become quite the experimental filmmaker. In the McEvoy Auditorium, on the lower level, the museum will screen The Great Blondino (1966), Plastic Haircut (1963), and Man’s Nature (1971), in total, a run time lasting approximately 100 minutes. The event begins at 6:30 p.m.
