Photographs of a woman wearing a bear suit, black-and-white hands, and a maid floating in a swimming pool all collide in the National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition “Portraiture Now: Staging the Self”. This show, which runs until April 12, 2015, displays works by six 21st century Latino artists. Their work represents people in the process of…

When asked to describe himself in an image, Professor Matthew Carnes of the government department responded, “leaning forward,” which captures his desire to connect with people.  He added, “My first semester, I taught in ICC auditorium, and I almost fell off the stage almost everyday. I’d walk around, and I’d be right at the edge…

Few concerts are worth going to if they are on a Monday night during a week with essays due and exams looming. The NEEDTOBREATHE performance at the Filmore on September 22nd was a rare exception. After taking the bus and metro out to Maryland, I arrived at 8:00 pm as the opening band, The Oh…

Who are the people that teach at Georgetown? How did they get to be where they are today: standing in a packed auditorium lecturing about realist theory or leading a vibrant discussion about poetry? As a student, I know why I go to class each day, but why do my professors get up to teach?…

On Saturday morning, about 800 freshmen and transfer students gathered in Red Square to participate in service projects in Ward 7. My group of fifty-three traveled by bus across the Anacostia River to our site, Fort Mahan. We stepped out of the air-conditioned bus and walked through the hot, humid air to a hill covered…

After an exhausting drive from Boston, Massachusetts to Georgetown and an afternoon of moving heavy boxes into my room, my mom and I felt ready for a relaxing evening. So, instead of booking a hotel downtown or in Rosslyn as close to campus as possible, we decided to stay in Alexandria, Virginia. Exploring a different…

Final exams are almost upon us, and many times I wish I could escape the tense atmosphere building up in Lauinger Library and spilling across campus. I wish I had a place to go that would pull my attention away from my essays and chemistry problem sets. Luckily, the Phillips Collection’s Rothko Room provides a space…

Brown twisting twigs support white and pastel pink flowers. The blooms’ sweet scent floats in the warm breeze running off the Tidal Basin while, across the water, the flowers blend into puffy clouds. With their visual and olfactory aesthetics, the trees at the Cherry Blossom festival are works of art. This idea, that nature is…

Despite last week’s snow and temperatures in the twenties, spring is finally arriving. What better way to celebrate than traveling to France? At the National Gallery, Jean Renoir and Vincent Van Gogh offer free round-trip tickets to Paris and Auvers. Walk to galleries eighty-three and eighty-five and allow the artists’ distinctive lighting and brushstrokes to…

When most people think about a college spring break, they imagine sun-soaked beaches, palm trees, and friends clinking Coronas. They don’t usually picture embarking on a road trip to Montreal, Canada with their sister and mother. Though not a typical spring vacation, my family and I explored Montreal for three days last week. Visiting the…
