Giveaway: Win a Family Visit to Crystalline at ARTECHOUSE!

Immerse in Crystalline at ARTECHOUSE

 

ARTECHOUSE, the gallery in Southwest DC known for its visually stunning and immersive digital art, just announced that its current exhibition, Crystalline, has been extended through February.  Even better, you have a chance to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to experience it!

Crystalline has transformed the gallery into a blue-hued haven intended to evoke calm and peace during a turbulent time.  Large scale projections on the walls of the main gallery and smaller ones in side areas engage and enchant as they encourage play.   Just about all of it is interactive, as the images change with viewers’ motions. Immersing into the depths of the color, even just for a little while, is a dazzling and delightful escape from the bizarre Covid world outside.

ARTECHOUSE is taking extra measures to ensure safety in response to Covid-19.  Capacity is limited, guests must wear masks,  directional signage helps social distancing, there are hand sanitizing stations, and cleaning and disinfecting takes place hourly.  You can read more about their safety policies here.

Crystalline is running at ARTECHOUSE through February 28, 2021.  Tickets are $19-24/adult, $12-15/child, $17-20/students, seniors, military & first responders (the lower price for online advance tickets, higher at the door).  Children under 4 are free.

Giveaway: American Pops Orchestra Presents “The Pied Piper” this Winter!


The American Pops Orchestra will kick off the New Year with another one-of-its-kind performance for kids and kids at heart. APO’s The Pied Piper will add a musical element to the classic story by placing the Piper in a town where music and dancing aren’t allowed. Piper, reimagined as a woman in this production, will have a tricky time convincing the locals that music can solve their rat problem, but if they keep their promise of a hefty reward, things just might work out!

The performance will spotlight outstanding actors from around our region. Featuring songs that we all know and love, including “9 to 5,” “Think,” “I Put a Spell on You,” and “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.”

The show is perfect for pre-K through fifth grade students — and adults will love it, too. APO brings fun, engaging activities for the whole family!

The Pied Piper performances are on Saturday, January 18, 2020, at 11am and 2pm at Arena Stage (1101 6th Street SW, WDC). Tickets are $17/child, $32/adult, and they make for perfect holiday gifts! They are available for purchase online, and of course, you can also enter the giveaway below for a chance to win a pair.
