From a press release:

“In REFRACTIONS Robin looks back at the 20 years of his history of documenting the world as a filmmaker and taking actions as a social activist. Collaged images and videos of both the archival and newly produced for the show are displayed on televisions and projected on sculptures throughout the space. With mirrors, cameras and other technologies seamlessly weaved into the art pieces, Robin allows the audience to see themselves in the installations and invites them to reflect on their own space in society at an intimate environment of the Lost Origins Gallery.  (more…)

Thanks to Jesse for sending around 11pm Saturday night:

“Someone is projecting photos from Friday’s Climate Strike on the side of this building on Columbia Rd in Adams Morgan. I can’t tell if it’s coming from the building next door or the roof of the Metro Wine & Spirits, but it’s showing photos from the demonstrations in DC and NY.” (more…)

From the National Cathedral (3101 Wisconsin Avenue, NW):

“Washington National Cathedral will host an interfaith prayer vigil on Friday, March 23, for activists, students and pilgrims who are attending Saturday’s March For Our Lives to demand that their lives and safety become a priority for Congressional leaders in order to end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools.

Students and leaders from many faith traditions will lead this prayer service recognizing the breadth of trauma caused by gun violence, including community shootings, gang violence, school massacres, and suicide. In prayer and song, this gathering will honor those lost, acknowledge the pain survivors and victims’ families carry, and lift up the need for healing for communities impacted by gun violence and our country. Families, including that of Carmen Schentrup, a victim of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, will be a part of the program of prayer and reflection.

Vigil partners include the Episcopal Diocese of WashingtonMayor’s Office of Religious AffairsThe Nation’s Mosque, Masjid MuhammadThe Dietrich Bonhoeffer InstituteSt. Mark’s Episcopal Capitol HillEpiscopal Youth MinistriesThe Church of the EpiphanyThe TraRon CenterCouncil of Churches of Greater WashingtonProgressive National Baptist ConventionFellowship of ReconciliationReligious Action Center of Reform JudaismVirginia Theological SeminarFaith in Public LifeShiloh Baptist ChurchEpiscopal Bishops United Against ViolenceThe Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut; and, Jewish Teens March for Our Lives.

Tickets and registrations will not be required for entry; however, registration is encouraged to help the Cathedral prepare to welcome everyone. Doors open at 6 pm and seating is on a first come, first served basis.


“The Endless Cycle” by Tim Tate. “For every man shown here, 1000 people died last year because of gun violence. For every gun shown here, a child dies every day. A hard lesson we have to learn from Orlando…and Parkland… and…..Only by joining together can we hope to curtail gun violence!”

From an email:

“Artists Against GunViolence opened Thursday in Petworth and runs through April 9th.

Hours: March 24 (after March for Our Lives) 3-6pm, March 28: 6-8pm, March 31: 3-6 pm, April 4: 6-8pm, April 7: 2-4pm,
April 9: 6-8pm

Artists Against GunViolence was created in solidarity with the students from Parkland Florida who quickly responded to the tragic events at their school with a call to action. 53 artists from the DC area show their opposition to gun violence in a gallery show at Third Floor and additional spaces in the Petworth neighborhood to open March 22nd in time for the Student led March for Our Lives rally in downtown Washington DC Saturday March 24th!
