Artwork by Jung Min Park, Curated by Trudi C. Van Dyke
On view at Adams Morgan’s DC Arts Center:
February 19 – March 20
Opening Reception: Friday, February 19, 7-9 pm
Mixed media fiber artist Jung Min Park successfully translates her life and travels as a self described “city girl” into her work.
Park makes it a point to be in the present as she maneuvers her way through each new city that surrounds her. The exhibition is a stroll through the culmination of experiences imprinted in her memories. Park does not try and deliberately recreate the environment of any particular city but her abstractions offer clues to the locations she internalizes. Focal points draw the eye to a realistic image that pulls the observer from the chaos of the urban abstractions to find order.
The exhibition encompasses large scale fiber canvases the artist manipulates with paint and collage entwined with ephemera. Carefully planned manipulation of the fiber and threads emphasizes the importance of negative space to the artist.
The exhibition also includes a strong selection of small framed collages floating on white backgrounds which capture a moment in time and place. Park affords viewers a sense of immersion via her memory-scapes and provides a platform to juxtapose their own city reflections.
The reception is free! Refreshments will be available for purchase (DCAC is a cash-only venue.)
Show yourself some love this February by joining the Georgetown Neighborhood Library for this special self-care celebration!
Drop by to make valentines — for yourself or a loved one — and affirmational buttons, as well as toiletries to keep you feeling and looking good all winter.
There will be sweet snacks to indulge in as we craft, and prizes for the first 20 attendees.

The 2014 Capital Fringe Festival is looking for volunteers for this summer’s Festival, which kicked off on July 10th and goes through July 27th!!
The Festival connects local audiences with dynamic, diverse performing arts programming that is affordable and accessible. Our goal is to create space for discussion and collaboration around the performing arts.
The Festival relies on its ~450 volunteers throughout, and as it continues to grow in its 9th season, volunteers are playing an even larger role. Volunteers sustain the Festival, and do a huge job in making it run smoothly.
We love our volunteers, and there are many perks to helping us out. For each shift, volunteers will receive vouchers that can be redeemed for show tickets. All volunteers get Fringe t-shirts, and volunteers that do multiple shifts can choose to exchange their vouchers for a Festival button.
We have two types of volunteer shifts during the Festival:
Baldacchino Tent Volunteers: These volunteers assist with food prep, running food to tables in the tent, and maintaining the areas behind the bar. This job requires a lot of energy and a great attitude! Shifts will start and end at Fort Fringe.
Box Office Volunteers: We have box office volunteers at every single show. These guys sell tickets and buttons at the show venue, provide customer service to all patrons, and maintain ticket-selling packs throughout their shift. Shifts will start and end at Fort Fringe.
If this sounds like fun to you, shoot me an email at [email protected].
You can view available shifts by enrolling in the Volunteer Portal at https://www.capitalfringe.org/for-volunteers. Enrolling does not mean you have to sign up for anything, but gives you access to the calendar of open volunteer opportunities.
Hope to see you at the Festival!!
I’m wondering if anyone knows about a musical theater writing group. I’m casually working on a musical (in my spare time) and am seeking writing partners (specifically a lyricist). While there are screenwriters groups in DC, I haven’t found anything for theater. Thank you
