    On January 15, we will celebrate the

    birth of Martin Luther King Jr.

    Politicians and the media will celebrate his "I have a dream" speech while never mentioning his

    staunch opposition to the Vietnam War or his passionate efforts to organize sanitation workers.

    Dr. King called for radical changes in the structure of our society to redistribute wealth and power.

    True compassion, he declared, is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it comes to see that an

    edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.

    Join us for a discussion on:

    The pro-worker legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. The struggle against war and racism today Budget cuts planned by the D.C. Council

    EXHIBITION: KYAN BISHOPJan 7th 2011- Jan 28th 2011

  • 8/8/2019 bMichael Events This Week 7 January 2011

    7/56

    Hillyer Art Space is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by Kyan Bishop.

    Her sculpture and installation work is often built by creating accumulations of simple,yet expressive forms that seek to provide an enriched understanding of the human

    experience. Repetition is an important aspect of her work and her interest in

    constructive processes creates a visual language that is unified by a sense of order

    and stability. While at times highly referential in nature, Bishop views her work as

    an intimate exploration of space and time as well as a reflection upon our rapidly

    changing landscape.

    Come to Bishop's Artists' Talk on Saturday January 15th, 2011 at 1:00 PM

    EXHIBITION: Leah Appel: Southern ApertureJan 7th 2011 - Jan 28th 2011

    Appel is a commercial and art photographer working in Washington DC. She received her

    BFA in Photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. She

    enjoys working with different mediums of photography and is particularly interested in

    various alternative processes and larger film formats.

    The images in the Southern Aperture exhibtion are shot with a Holga camera, darkroom

    printed, then toned with an antique process called Berg printing to give them the earth

    colors that embody both the beauty and grittiness of the real South.
