Our Pick for the Week: Anonymous Art at Flashpoint Gallery

Anonymous art is the name of the game at the Flashpoint Gallery (916 G Street, NW) on Thursday evening. The Washington Project for the ArtsCorcoran (WPAC) invited ten area artists to create two-by-two-foot pieces and then ask nine more artists to do the same. The results, called Anonymous III, will hang in the gallery without identifying information. Buy a piece, and you won’t learn who the artist is until afterward. WPA/C says it's "a playful survey of contemporary art in the greater DC area and a unique art buying experience." Sure sounds like it. A list of artists is located here, with more info about the show. The show’s opening reception is from 6 to 8 pm.

The anonymous art show is just one of our picks for the upcoming week. For more entertainment, including a Capitol Hill martini happy hour, your last chance for free Shakespeare, and a trippy neo-folk concert, check out the Where & When Weekly column.
