TIn honor of Georg Baselitz’s 80th birthday, the Hirshhorn will feature this milestone exhibition of one of Germany’s seminal artists, starting Thursday and running through Sept. 16. Six Decades is the first major U.S. retrospective of Baselitz’s work in more than 20 years. You’ll be able to view more than 100 of his inventive figurative paintings and sculptures across the Hirshhorn’s second floor galleries, including famous pieces such as The Naked Man (1962) and Baselitz’s upside-down paintings, which gained him international notoriety.
This month’s edition of “Art Your Heart Out” is going to be a bit different from the last ones. Typically my art breakdown consists mainly of studio art, however, I got to thinking recently and decided that the painter in me was giving you guys some pretty biased results.
I mean, art encompasses so many genres, and looking back, I noticed I haven’t been giving that much attention to other forms of artistic expression such as dance, poetry and theater events.
Okay, so it’s Friday the 13th and by all accounts this should be a questionable weekend to say the least, right? WRONG! This weekend is literally going to be jam packed full of insanity and I literally almost can’t take it.
I mean honestly, I blog about events for a living but I’m a total observer/introvert at heart and so I very rarely find events that are intriguing enough to get me out of bed on weekend morning… … WEEKEND HITLIST: FRIDAY 13TH EDITION
Okay, so maybe it’s not necessarily summer as of yet — but a girl can dream can’t she!? Plus that GIF of Stewie from Family Guy just made me chuckle so I had to choose it for this despite it’s fairly loose relevence.
Trust me, you’re happy. You know you like it!
Alas — I digress, the spring/summer hybrid is officially in full swing. I know this because I put on my parka to go outside to walk my dog and was met with a bunch of hipsters dressed in shorts, boat shoes and Raybans.
Okay, is it just me or does it feel like finding a bunch of killer events this weekend is like pulling teeth!?! I mean, seriously I really tried to compile my own independent information but I was struggling to put together a list that I was very proud of.
You see, I only recommend events that I could see either myself, my friends or family members attending because I’m trying to give you guys a good time. But it almost seems like all of DC is so wrapped up in the Cherry Blossom Festival that there has been a little bit of slack this weekend with the fun tickets!
Well lasses and laddies if it isn’t the weekend we’ve all been waiting for AKA St. Patty’s Edition, where the rivers run green and the beers taste exactly the same except they always put that weird green dye in them like #nothankyou.
Spring is here and what better way to ring in the new season than with a brand new ART YOUR HEART OUT courtesy of moi — UrbanScrawl DC’s resident artist/creative entrepreneur and lover of all things aesthetic.
Yep…I came up with that title myself…
