WEDNESDAY

A man passionately kisses an unresponsive woman; above them, thought balloons relate their respective thoughts: “Its like she’s made of ice!” “If he just didn’t put on those damn flamenco records!” Jules Feiffer’s iconic pen-and-ink drawings recall our own interior conversations as squiggly urbanites fret over jobs, current events, and romantic mishaps. The exhibition focuses mostly on the cartoonist’s now-defunct strip, Feiffer, but examples of more recent work are also featured, including drawings for his new children’s book, The Daddy Mountain: A scrawny little redhead laboriously “climbs” her dad to finally rest on his shoulder, a reminder of when grown-ups were so immense. “Julz Rulz: Inside the Mind of Jules Feiffer” is on view from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. (see City List for other dates) at the District of Columbia Jewish Community Center’s Anne Loeb Bronfman Gallery, 1529 16th St. NW. Free. (202) 777-3248. (Hetty Lipscomb)
