Field trip to see Holly Bass' first solo!

Holly Bass
This Saturday there's super cool way to see something unique and important in the visual arts, see a gorgeous art space near the DMV that most city folk have never seen, and experience one of the DMV's most talented artists' first solo show.
My friend, the very talented  Holly Bass, is exploring her family roots through poetry, visuals and song at her first solo show in the beautiful Black Rock Arts Center. To make it a whole package, there is a chartered school bus going to BlackRock on Saturday! It leaves from Dupont Circle and goes to directly to the gallery with complimentary Dos Equis beer. 

Field trip!  

Saturday March 5

Root Work: Exhibition & live performance

Black Rock Arts Center
12901 Town Commons Dr.Germantown, MC 20874

This performance, video installation and photographic series explores the intersections of land, labor, and family.  Bass went down to her father’s birthplace in Georgia to share his story of growing up in a family of sharecroppers, picking cotton by hand, providing a window on the complicated roots of one aspect of our national identity. The exhibition will remain on view in the gallery through March 26.

Take a chartered bus from Dupont Circle to Black Rock on Saturday. Click here for $6 bus tickets!

Bus to BlackRock leaves at 11am.
Free performance at 1pm.

Bonus:  Due to my current BORG-like state, where I am full of medical tubes, I can't go, but I would love to publish a review of the show here. If you do attend the show and want to get published, email me a review, and pending approval, I will publish it here.
