Comments () | Published November 22, 2010
The Washington Color School is one of the most important artistic traditions to come out of this area. A new exhibit, “Washington Color and Light,” at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, celebrates that legacy of innovation. The show features galleries of abstract line-and-color-saturated paintings and a light sculpture by 81-year-old Robert Irwin. Through March 6.

Celebrate the second issue of the up-and-coming literary magazine the New Professional. The party, at the Black Cat, features a performance by Future People. The latest issue includes interviews with John Waters, Amy Arbus, and Jimmy Eat World as well as stories by local writers. 9 PM. Tickets ($10) available here.

If you love a man in uniform, catch the Army Blues—the jazz band of the US Army—at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. The group’s mission is to preserve the sound and style of big-band music. 6 PM; free.
