  1. This is a continuation of the List of Restaurant Openings - 2018 thread. Please write me if you know of any others!
  2. In a 4-hour, 55-minute thriller of a match in yesterday's Wimbledon Gentleman's Finals, Novak Djokovic barely defeated Roger Federer, the final score being 7-6(5), 1-6, 7-6(4), 4-6, 13-12(3). The match was so close that, at one point, Federer was serving with two match points on his racket, with the score in the fifth set 8-7, 40-15; yet, Djokovic somehow managed to draw even at deuce, and go on to break Federer's serve. The match was so close that Federer actually won more games (36-32) and more points (218-204). Today, Monday, a growing coalition is forming, contending that Federer actually won the match, and that he is the rightful Wimbledon champion. Reginald Halliday, one of the leaders of the movement, says, "Federer won more games, and most importantly, more points. How could Djokovic possibly be considered the champion, when he didn't even win a majority of these? The rules of tennis are archaic and unethical, and Federer will always be the 2019 champion to anyone of sound judgment." A representative for the Wimbledon tournament has not yet responded.
  3. A major wildfire in Spain began when a pile of chicken dung spontaneously combusted in the heat. "Self-Combusting Manure at Spanish Chicken Farm Blamed for Devastating Wildfire" on thelocal.es
  4. Per wikipedia. Competition starts tomorrow with Brazil vs. Bolivia. Cheering on my homies Messi (Argentina) and Suarez (Uruguay).

  7. I always look forward to this time of year when the announcements will be made as to who will make the cut for semifinals, and I anticipate who may move onto the next round to be awarded a final nomination to be announce best of in May. Any predictions ?
  8. I'm not one to rush out to be the first in line for things, but I have 4PM tickets today for the opening-day screening of "Us," and after seeing "Get Out," I'm very much looking forward to it.
  9. For Picasso and Dali fans, this looks like a worthy trip up to Baltimore. This appears to be a ticketed exhibit with timed entry, tickets available on the BMA's website. Monsters & Myths: Surrealism and War in the 1930s and 1940s Nearly 90 Surrealist masterworks of the 1930s and 1940s by artists such as Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, and André Masson are presented through a timely lens—that of war, violence, and exile. Despite the political and personal turmoil brought on by the Spanish Civil War and World War II, avant-garde artists in Europe and those who sought refuge in the United States pushed themselves to create some of the most potent and striking images of the Surrealist movement. Monstrosities in the real world bred monsters in paintings and sculpture, on film, and in the pages of journals and artists’ books, resulting in a period of extraordinary creativity.
  10. Since most of my air travel is trans-atlantic rather than domestic thought I would start a thread on a little known Icelandic LCC WOW AIR that flies out of BWI. I've used them about 10 times, for no reason other than to save money. First thing to know is they have been in financial difficulty, but are currently being purchased by a private equity outfit that has stakes in several LCC, so hopefully they'll bring some expertise. Round trip they can be $200 to $500 less expensive than the next best. Maybe that's why they are in trouble. They've really tightened up their baggage limits, so you have to be prepared to pack light, and use a cheap laundromat. In October I flew for $380 round trip that was booked 4 weeks out. To Ams, Dub, Frank, Lon, Paris etc.you have a 90 minute layover in Keflavik, time to stretch your legs etc. which suits me because I never sleep. All told it adds about three hours to a direct flight to NW EU. They are no more or less comfortable than any other LCC. Once when flying to Barcelona we had a 6am to 6pm layover and used it for a quick day trip to the city, an hour away. https://wowair.us/

  13. The always popular orchid exhibit is back, taking over the Kogod Courtyard (!)

A joint collaboration with SAAM, the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Gardens, and the U.S. Botanic Garden, this installation fills the museums’ courtyard with hundreds of orchids of stunning variety. Did you know that orchids are found on every continent except Antarctica? The gorgeous presentation showcases how orchids have adapted to their many different environments.
  14. For all you Tolkein/Lord of the Rings fans Tolkein: Maker of Middle-Earth " “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.” With these words the Oxford professor J.R.R. Tolkien ignited a fervid spark in generations of readers. From the children’s classic The Hobbit to the epic The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien’s adventurous tales of hobbits and elves, dwarves and wizards have introduced millions to the rich history of Middle-earth. Going beyond literature, Tolkien’s Middle-earth is a world complete with its own languages and histories. Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth celebrates the man and his creation. The exhibition will be the most extensive public display of original Tolkien material for several generations. Drawn from the collections of the Tolkien Archive at the Bodleian Library (Oxford), Marquette University Libraries (Milwaukee), the Morgan, and private lenders, the exhibition will include family photographs and memorabilia, Tolkien’s original illustrations, maps, draft manuscripts, and designs related to The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion."
  15. Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: Pulse On view November 1, 2018 through April 28, 2019. "In the Hirshhorn’s largest interactive technology exhibition to date, three major installations from Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s Pulse series will come together for the artist’s DC debut. A Mexican Canadian artist known for straddling the line between art, technology, and design, Lozano-Hemmer will fill the Museum’s entire Second Level with immersive environments that use heart-rate sensors to create kinetic and audiovisual experiences from visitors’ own biometric data. Over the course of six months, Pulse will animate the vital signs of hundreds of thousands of participants. With Lozano-Hemmer’s trademark sensitivities to audience engagement and architectural scale, each installation captures biometric signatures and visualizes them as repetitive sequences of flashing lights, panning soundscapes, rippling waves, and animated fingerprints. These intimate “portraits,” or “snapshots,” of electrical activity are then added to a live archive of prior recordings to create an environment of syncopated rhythms. At a time when biometry is increasingly used for identification and control, this data constitutes a new way of representing both anonymity and community. While reflecting on the upcoming exhibition, Hirshhorn Director Melissa Chiu offered the following: “Lozano-Hemmer will activate the Museum like never before…His hypnotic installations invite museum visitors to participate in a one-of-a-kind experience while addressing complex themes surrounding agency, mortality, and ownership.” The exhibition begins with Pulse Index (2010), which will be presented at its largest scale to date. The work records participants’ fingerprints at the same time as it detects their heart rates, displaying data from the last 10,000 users on a scaled grid of massive projections. The second work, Pulse Tank (2008), which premiered at Prospect.1, New Orleans Biennial, will be updated and expanded for this new exhibition. Sensors will turn your pulse into ripples on illuminated water tanks, creating ever-changing patterns that will be reflected on the gallery walls. Pulse Room (2006) rounds out the exhibition. The final installation features hundreds of clear, incandescent light bulbs hanging from the ceiling in even rows, pulsing with the heartbeats of past visitors. You can add your heartbeat to the installation by touching a sensor, which transmits your pulse to the first bulb. Additional heartbeats continue to register on the first bulb, advancing earlier recordings ahead one bulb at a time. The sound of the collected heartbeats will join the light display to amplify the physical impact of the installation. Six short documentaries of Pulse works will also be exhibited, showing the breadth of the series through video footage of various other biometric public-art interventions in Abu Dhabi, Toronto, Hobart, New York, and Urdaibai, Spain (2007–2015)."
  16. opps, somehow missed this one, but still two months left to get up to NYC. Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again Few American artists are as ever-present and instantly recognizable as Andy Warhol (1928–1987). Through his carefully cultivated persona and willingness to experiment with non-traditional art-making techniques, Warhol understood the growing power of images in contemporary life and helped to expand the role of the artist in society. This exhibition—the first Warhol retrospective organized by a U.S. institution since 1989—reconsiders the work of one of the most inventive, influential, and important American artists. Building on a wealth of new materials, research and scholarship that has emerged since the artist’s untimely death in 1987, this exhibition reveals new complexities about the Warhol we think we know, and introduces a Warhol for the 21st century.
  17. For all the Rembrandt fans, should be a good one. Life in the Age of Rembrandt "On view exclusively at CMA, Life in the Age of Rembrandt is the first collaborative project stemming from an ongoing international partnership between CMA and the Dordrecht Museum, The Netherlands. The goal of this partnership is to celebrate the remarkable treasures of both museums while broadening perspectives and cultivating a global view of community. Life in the Age of Rembrandt showcases some 40 masterworks, many paired with a related object such as a print, a coin, Delft ware, or silver. Called the cradle of the Golden Age, Dordrecht is steeped in European Old World traditions, art, and history and is the oldest incorporated port city in Holland. Dordrecht Museum is one of the oldest and most important fine art museums in the country. Spanning over three centuries, Life in the Age of Rembrandt features 17th-century art from the Golden Age of Dutch painting, and concludes with works of The Hague School of the late 19th century. The Dutch Golden Age (17th century) was a period of great wealth for the Dutch Republic, including Dordrechts. As international trade blossomed, cities and citizens grew in wealth and prominence. The influence of the Golden Age is still visible in Dordrecht’s many mansions, canals, churches, city walls and harbors. Art and science blossomed during this time as well. The majority of works in Life in the Age of Rembrandt were executed in the 17th century or Northern Baroque period, during which time Dutch painting’s most famous master Rembrandt was active. In Dordrechts and elsewhere, 17th century Dutch art was a mirror of daily life in Holland. The so-called “little masters” specialized in specific types of subjects such as portraits, landscapes, still lifes, and genre scenes or depictions of everyday life. These paintings were owned by members of Holland’s prosperous middle class, and rarely included overtly religious subjects, since the dominant Calvinist faith in Holland prohibited images of Biblical figures in churches. However, secular paintings were often lled with hidden religious or moralizing meanings."
  18. Carolina Mayorga: PINK Ranchos and Other Ephemeral Zip Codes "The Organization of American States (OAS) AMA | Art Museum of the Americas proudly presents PINK Ranchos and Other Ephemeral Zip Codes, an exhibition of new work by Colombian-American artist Carolina Mayorga, in dialog with AMA’s permanent collection. Through this series of interconnected works, Mayorga invites the audience to enter a PINK-mented reality and experience her bi-cultural interpretations of those living inside ranchos, cambuches, shelters and other ephemeral zip codes. This site-specific multimedia project is the result of a year of artistic investigation on issues of home and homelessness and the artist’s infatuation with PINK. By applying the pigment to women and children (characters typically associated with home), memories of her native Colombia, 14 years of residency in Washington, DC and AMA’s permanent collection, she has created a pleasing environment to contrast the experiences of those living in exile, displacement, dislocation, relocation, and eviction."
  19. Zilia Sánchez: Soy Isla (I Am an Island) "The Phillips Collection presents the first museum retrospective of Cuban artist Zilia Sánchez (b. 1926, Havana). This long-overdue exhibition examines the artist’s prolific yet largely unknown career that spans almost 70 years, featuring more than 60 works including paintings, works on paper, shaped canvases, and sculptural pieces, alongside illustrations, design sketches, and ephemera. The exhibition traces Sánchez’s artistic journey from her early days in Cuba to her extended visits to Europe and residence in New York, and finally her move to Puerto Rico, where she now lives and works. Many of Sánchez’s works reference protagonists from ancient mythology (such as Trojans, Amazonians, and Antigone—all warriors and female heroines). Others have reoccurring motifs of lunar shapes, erotic topologies, and tattoo drawings that map physical and psychological spaces and add another dimension to her curvilinear geometry, rich with metaphorical meaning. The exhibition title, I Am an Island, serves as a personal metaphor for Sanchez's experience as an islander—connected to and disconnected from both the mainland and mainstream art currents."
  20. Artists Respond: American Art and the Vietnam War, 1965-1975 How the Vietnam War changed American art "By the late 1960s, the United States was in pitched conflict both in Vietnam, against a foreign power, and at home—between Americans for and against the war, for and against the social status quo. Artists Respond: American Art and the Vietnam War, 1965–1975 presents art created amidst this turmoil—between the time of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s fateful decision to deploy U.S. ground troops to South Vietnam in 1965 and the fall of Saigon ten years later. Artists Respond brings together nearly 100 works by fifty-eight of the most visionary and provocative artists and artist groups of the period, including Asco, Corita Kent, Edward Kienholz, Rupert García, Leon Golub, Hans Haacke, David Hammons, Kim Jones, Yoko Ono, Martha Rosler, Carolee Schneemann and Nancy Spero. Galvanized by the moral urgency of the Vietnam War, these artists reimagined the goals and uses of art, affecting developments in multiple movements and media: painting, sculpture, printmaking, performance and body art, installation, documentary art and conceptualism. The exhibition presents an era in which artists endeavored to respond to the turbulent times and participated in a process of free and open questioning inherent to American civic life."

  22. Press Release -PA Department of Agriculture Reveals 2019 Farm Show Theme: Inspiring Pennsylvania’s Story I arrived knee- high to a grasshopper back in 1980 to this little town of York, Pa. From a early age I knew I wanted to explore a world far beyond the bountiful farms of Pennsylvania. I have worked in cities that include Baltimore, the District, Rehobeth, and glitzy New York City. One thing that had always fascinated me was both the simplicity and pride of the residents of Central Pa. For the first time since i arrived in this charismatic town, I will be attending the annual Pa Farm Show. I will be like a kid in a candy store. I look forward to my exploration, and all of the nooks and crannies I anticipate consuming. 2019 Schedule of Events #Papreferred, kat
