      • Dean Byington: Buildings Without Shadows

      • Identidad by Silvia Levenson
      • In the exhibition Identidad, Silvia Levenson channels her identity as a survivor of the Argentinian Dirty War and her emotional connection to the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo in order to push the boundaries in her glassmaking.  “I feel that glass is the ideal medium for conveying this mixed feeling of beauty, fragility, and tension that represents our human condition,” says Levenson.

      • Katzen Museum First Floor Exhibition
      • Forty years ago, in a derelict building hidden among the abandoned amusement park rides of Glen Echo Park, four young photographers founded Photoworks with little more than a shared passion for the daily work of seeing, shooting, and printing images of lasting beauty and artistic integrity.

      • Phyllis Plattner: Gods of War!
      • Phyllis Plattner's art uses images of war and religion from art history and photojournalism to contrast the opposing drives of violence and peace. The contrasting images result in a stunning and poignant juxtaposition. The solo-exhibition features monumental, highly narrative altarpieces from Plattner's Legends and Chronicles of War series.
