Highlights – July 22

Artapedia Highlights
In July, we primarily covered Fringe, but we also shined a spotlight on a special DC arts educator.

“An exploration of mental illness, the staccato rhythm in the music and movement envelop the viewer in the fever pitch of mania.”

Elephant in the Room at the Capital Fringe Festival
Elephant in the Room Reviewed
“Elephant in the Room is precisely the kind of show one expects at the Fringe. It’s quirky, and somewhat impenetrable, and the experimental energy is delightful.”

and from our sister site, Bourgeon:

The Voyageurs
Histories, Heroes, and Small Moments
by. Nathan Loda
“The subjects in these paintings were inspired by my search into my own identity, and connected to that, my exploration of what is authentic and meaningful to me as an artist.”

The Washington Post
“All of this is well and good, and if you were there, you had every reason to enjoy it. But I think it will take more than a visit to a perfectly good performance, or my exhortations about how great the experience is, to persuade you or anyone else to rush out and buy tickets.”
