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.

It’s a giveaway for MLK Day! I have a pair of tickets up for grabs for The King’s Speech, coming to National Theatre February 11-16.
The King’s Speech is based on the true story of King George VI’s struggle with a speech impediment and the friendship he formed with his unconventional speech therapist, Lionel Logue. With the Nazi threat looming and civil unrest at home, royal secrets explode around the King as he’s thrust onto the world stage. David Seidler’s original play — which inspired the 2010 Oscar-winning film starring Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush – will make its long-awaited U.S. debut in a production The Mail proclaims “A right royal treat.”
This stage production is recommended for ages 13 and up. Tickets are $54-114, and you can look for a discount here. Of course, you can try to win them through the giveaway below.
