How do you make art in the shadow of the Holocaust? In the 50 years since World War II, a generation of artists has matured that knows about Nazi German atrocities only through indirect sources. Nine of the 31 artists assembled for the Washington Project for the Arts’ exhibition “Burnt Whole: Contemporary Artists Reflect on the Holocaust” will join curator Karen Holtzman and Israeli critic Sarit Shapira for “Art and the Holocaust: Contemporary Perspectives,” a discussion exploring art’s ability to address a subject widely defined as indescribable and unrepresentable. At 3 p.m. at the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden’s Ring Auditorium, 8th & Independence Ave. SW. FREE. (202) 347-4813. (Martha McWilliams)
