Internationally acclaimed artist and trained architect Tomás Saraceno uses iridescent panels, spider webs, and inflatable orbs in three fascinating sculptures on view. The centerpiece of the exhibition, Entangled Orbits, transforms the East Lobby with clusters of iridescent-paneled modules held in place by strings reminiscent of a spider web. Appearing somewhat like bubbles, these spherical modules evoke the artist’s visionary plans for “cloud cities,” which look to naturally occurring forms for inspiration and might provide environments for future human habitation.

Like an old-time barn dance in downtown New Orleans, the Bumper Jacksons pull together a vast array of early American traditions into a deliciously cohesive sound that strikes you right in the heart. Country swing, old-time blues, brassed-up bluegrass - these high-spirit wonders do and love it all.

Nearly twenty years ago, General Maximilian Morder devised a plan to bring order to the world with the aid of a mysterious goo. Things didn’t pan out. Now, the elixir is in the hands of Reggie and Silas Cryptz – two moronic morticians who have drawn the vile ire of a family they’ve cheated in the past. The antics of our heroes will lead to monstrous results, and a dire intersection with fate.

A multi instrumentalist (piano, guitar, cornet) Craig Gildner started playing guitar in 1979 and has led several successful larger swing era groups here in D.C since 1999. Recently he’s focused on the demanding yet satisfying chord melody guitar style of the late 40’s and 50’s. In September 2017 at the encouragement of fellow guitarist John Pizzarelli, he began playing 7 string archtop guitar and fascinated by the possibilities of the instrument, hasn’t looked back.
