George Washington's Luther W. Brady Art Gallery will present the Washington debut of "Michael Craig-Martin: Drawings." The center piece of the exhibition is a large 5-by-4 foot wall drawing created on site especially for the gallery, and the exhibit includes more than 30 drawings of subjects drawn from ordinary life, which Mr. Craig-Martin portrays using a mechanical line.
"Michael Craig-Martin: Drawings" was selected from a recent exhibition organized by Alan Cristea Gallery, London, and is the artist's first-ever exhibition in Washington, D.C. His work is in the collections of the MoMA in New York City and the Tate Gallery in London. He was recently commissioned to create a poster for the 2012 London Olympics.
The exhibition is free and open to the public from Jan.11 through Feb. 17. The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery is open Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

William, who says last night's alumni event at Nationals Park was the first baseball game he ever attended, was tipped off about the visible moon by Brad Bower, director of sports information.
"Anytime I see a moon over stuff, I kind of think of the Ansel Adams photo Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico," says William. "There's a legend that he made the exposure, because he knew exactly the candlepower of the moon. I didn't. I just took the picture."
