and she’ll be at tonight’s Corcoran preview of A Photographer’s Life. I’m definitely going to talk to her. I don’t know what I’m going to say (other than sorry it’s so hot here) I have 4 hours…
Also DC is going to get some coverage on ArtNet News in the Capital RoundUp – I’ll post it as soon as I can – curious to see what and who they are going to mention…
I get alot of emails regarding which young benefactor group to join in DC. There are several to choose from and if you are familiar with some of my past posts it’s obvious which one I believe in enough to be affiliated – and that is the 1869 Society at The Corcoran Gallery of Art.
For several reasons: The programming at the Corcoran Gallery is the most progressive; Yes, I’m sure moms in Virginia are more pumped about the Ansel Adams show than me, but an evening with Annie Leibovitz or Jeremy Blake is much more enticing than another Turner Retrospective.
The other members are commmitted and vibrant supporters of the regional art community. You can always count on meeting someone enriching and enjoying some event or exhibition that has its finger on the pulse of what’s important in today’s art world – not what was fashionable 400 years ago.
1869′s first event is the scavenger hunt during the cultural cocktails evening:
Thursday, October 18 at 6:30 p.m.
1869 Society FREE, Members $10, Public $24
What was the age of the photographer in the oldest of the prints in Ansel Adams? Which Annie Leibovitz photograph is being exhibited to the public for the first time here at the Corcoran? Join us for Find the Photograph, a Corcoran scavenger hunt on October 18, for a chance to win complimentary tickets to the 1869 Society’s Fall Fête: Natural Glamour in Black and White. Light Hors d’oeuvres and open bar.
Hope to see you there!
