New Art Exhibit

Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) held an opening on a happening art night in Washington, DC last night. Inside the Capitol Skyline Hotel, the WPA showed works by installation artist Ira Tattelman. Since the installation took place in the Hotel Lounge, Tattelman engaged hotel visitors with a series of games that they could play while sipping their drinks.

Hanging on the far wall are six games, ranging from Hangman and Tic-tac-toe, to the more obscure, Fox and Geese. Several people played while I looked at the material the artist used to make the games. Deceptively simple, screws marked places on the game board and plastic plugs made up the game pieces to move around. I really appreciated that the screws created shadows on the wall that made for a nice pattern.

The show appears at the Hotel on South Capitol Street and I Street, SW. 

Later that night, Art Whino held a show for invited guests at the old Friendship Baptist Church on Delaware Avenue, SW.
