From your friendly City List editor come some updates and corrections to last week’s listings:
–Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Two Works in Progress opens at The Phillips Collection on 10/16, not the Hirshhorn (the mistake appears in our a In & Out box). From the Phillips Collection’s Shira Pinkser: “The artists highlight their upcoming works of art: Over the River, Project for the Arkansas River, State of Colorado; and The Mastaba, Project for the United Arab Emirates. The Arkansas River project involves assembling and suspending 5.9 miles of fabric panels horizontally above a 40-mile stretch of the Arkansas River. The Mastaba will be larger than the great pyramid at Giza and will comprise 410,000 steel oil barrels, stacked on their sides and painted in bright colors for a mosaic-like effect in changing light. Following the lecture, Christo and Jeanne-Claude will sign copies of their book, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Over the River, Project for the Arkansas River, State of Colorado.” The Phillips Collection, 1600 21st St. NW.
–Studio Theatre’s The Road To Mecca has been extended to Oct. 26, and will not close on Oct. 12 (as stated in our theatre In & Out box). Check out show times and ticket prices here.
-For those of you who hoping to check out Trumbo @ the Rep Stage, consider seeing Intelligence instead (as Trumbo closed last month).
