Hungary Comes to Washington

Two interesting exhibition with a Hungarian flavor to them come to the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center, Lajos Vajda: Bridge Builder and Another Time —Another Place: Contemporary Hungarian Video Artists.

Vajda Lajos: Bridge Builder is the first comprehensive survey in the United States of the work of Vajda Lajos.

Another Time—Another Place: Contemporary Hungarian Video Artists is a selection of photo installations and video by young contemporary Hungarian artists.

The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is free. For more information call 202-885-ARTS (2787).

Still available

This past Saturday, the Washington Project for the Arts hosted the 28th Annual Art Auction Gala at the Katzen Arts Center. The event serves as WPA's major fundraising effort each year while also providing an opportunity to showcase the work of regional and national artists.

They sold over 80 works of art on Saturday and raised much needed funds for the organization. In spite of these sales, they fell short of their fundraising goals and are asking their supporters to considering purchasing one or more of the unsold works.

Their website has been updated to show the works that remain available and the current sales price. As of this moment there are 30 works available priced from $500 and up. In addition, they have 24 table sculptures available starting at $250.
