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.  Read More

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.

Meet Jackie! This adorable American Mutt is about 4 years old, and is described as a puppy in an adult’s body! Jackie is very playful and sweet, and gets along well with other dogs and all people! She would do best in a home where she will have lots of play and exercise time, and would love to show off her spirited and joyful nature at doggy day care and the dog park! Jackie is about 34 lbs., and is doing great with crate training, and learning new commands. She is a lovely pup who will flourish in an attentive and fun-loving home. If exuberant Jackie sounds like a good fit for you, find out more about adopting her here.

Say hello to Special Spike, a gentle boy in search of a patient and loving home. Spike arrived at the Baltimore city shelter with a serious injury to his left eye. 4Paws Rescue has taken care of his eye surgery, and now Spike can concentrate on the important work of finding the right place to call his own. Spike is shy and learning to trust people, so will need a home where his family gives him the time he needs to come out of his shell. This handsome 6-year-old boy will make a wonderful pet for the right family – is it yours? Find out more about adopting Spike here.

“Dear PoPville,

Everyday I drive down Florida and up 18th. For the past 3 (?) years the northeast corner there has been converted from a wine store to what was supposed to be a bar. The rumor was the bar would connect to Jack Rose underground. We have watched the progress for years and it still looks like they aren’t close. The past few weeks I haven’t seen any construction crews. Do you know anything about this or if it is on hold? We are so curious in our family and talk about it almost every day!”

This is of course The Imperial from the Jack Rose folks coming to the old De Vinos and Dahlak spaces. When I walked past last weekend there was a rip in the paper and they really do look super close: Read More


Tailor for Women?

“Dear PoPville,

There have been a couple of questions about good tailors every few years on PoPville. But there haven’t been any specifically for women. There is just no way for me to buy an off the rack blazer and have it fit properly. Women obviously have different tailoring needs than men, and its often hard to find someone who can handle them – just because someone can hem pants well doesn’t mean they know how to tailor around breasts. I’m hoping PoPville’s hive mind can identify some good ones in the district (and I’ll go to MD/VA if needed). Thanks!”
