Creating a 3rd Space: Femininity in Visual Culture

An exhibition featuring the works of three female artists. Curated by 3rd Root Aesthetic ( (a female owned art consulting and management business) and hosted by Caramel (a female owned boutique) this exhibition displays a collective of women from three distinct backgrounds and epitomizes what it means to be a woman of the 21st century.

The three artists address issues such as identity construction, love, motherhood, beauty, and fashion. Femininity in Visual Culture is the created space where female artists develop and exhibit distinct areas of representation and expression.

The Historical Society of Washington, D.C. Hosts Lecture Celebrating the
Albert Small Collection (801 K St. NW)

“On Sunday, May 17th, 2009 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm, the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. highlights the Albert Small Collection as part of the ongoing HSW Lecture Series. The Albert Small Collection comprises rare late 18th to early 20th century maps and prints of Washington, D.C., collected by Albert Small. Six active researchers, including collection curator Dr. James Goode, will discuss the importance of private collectors in preserving primary historical resources. The program will include presentations on a survey of the Washington, D.C. site before it was officially selected by George Washington, and a map penciled by a British soldier while resting in Bladensburg. Discussion will center on these and other maps in the Small Collection, but will also include other unique documents and artifacts such as George Washington’s letters. Complimentary tea and coffee will be available while viewing maps. The event is free and open to the public and will be held on Sunday, May 17th, 2009 from 2:00pm – 3:30pm. The lecture is appropriate for ages 16 to adult. If you wish to RSVP for this event, please email [email protected]

  • More than 50,000 people will all gather on the National Mall on June 6 to
    take a stand in the global movement to end breast cancer. Each year, up to
    75 percent of the Komen Global Race’s net income stays in the Washington,
    D.C. metropolitan area to fund local screening, treatment and education
    programs for the medically underserved. The remaining dollars support the
    Global Promise Fund, a program of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which is
    dedicated to reaching underserved people in areas where breast cancer
    mortality rates are the highest.

    This year, I’ll be participating in an incredible event called the Susan G.
    Komen Global Race for the Cure®. A 5K run that I will be doing with some
    friends, survivors and a bunch of other people from the area that care about
    finding the cure for breast cancer.

    You can give online at http://www.GlobalRacefortheCure.org. Or you can register
    to race as well. Just follow the link below to visit my personal fundraising
    webpage and make a donation. If you can’t race or donate this year, just
    come on out and show your support by wearing pink and cheering everyone
