Georgetown Village Health Care Event April 12th

March 21, 2018

Who will coordinate your care if you can’t? Do you know how Georgetown Village, geriatric social workers, your ministry and healthcare services can coordinate help when you need it?


Georgetown Village has organized a panel of experts to address this topic on April 12th.  The panelists will include: geriatric case manager, Deb Rubenstein, Director of Consultation, IONA Senior Services; Rev. Elizabeth Keeler of Christ Church Georgetown; John Bradshaw of Georgetown Home Care; Pam Godwin, nurse practitioner and Lynn Golub-Rofrano, Executive Director, Georgetown Village.


The discussion will focus on case studies of a person at three different ages (70’s, 80’s and 90’s) and stages of life.  Each panelist will describe his or her respective role in caring for the person at that stage and questions from the audience will be encouraged regarding each stage.  Emphasis will be placed on coordination of care, and audience members will be given a continuum-of-care handout that illustrates the coordination of various services.  The panel discussion will last approximately 45 minutes to an hour followed by dinner and discussions with individual panelists. It is free and open to the public.

This event will be held at St John’s Church, 3240 O Street in Georgetown at 5:30 pm followed by drinks, dinner and discussion with the panelists.


Reservations are required so please call 202.999.8988 or email to reserve your spot by April 6th.

Watch This at SAAM

March 7, 2018

Watch This! New Directions in the Art of the Moving Image is a series of rotating exhibitions drawn from the Smithsonian American Art Museum's (SAAM) permanent collection on view March 11 through March 18, 2018.


The works of art featured in this installation identify a complex relationship between still photography and moving images. These artistic engagements with captured and recorded pictures examine notions of storytelling and processes of interpretation, underscoring just how relative meaning can be, and urging viewers to question where the power of imagery might reside. Taken together, the arrangement traces a vibrant call and response between artists and pictures, narratives, and interpretation.


This presentation of Watch This! is the sixth in the series. It features Alex Prager’s digital cinema installation Face in the Crowd (2013), recently acquired by SAAM. Projected across three walls in a screening room, Face in the Crowd traces a spectrum of concerns—a fear of crowds and the desire to stand out amongst them, voyeurism and exhibitionism, the spectator’s gaze, and the inability to live up to expectations. But it more acutely identifies the anxiety of being swept up by the masses while trying to create and maintain a sense of self; conditions long present in the physical world, but amplified in the virtual spaces we inhabit today.


Also on view are John Baldessari’s Walking Forward – Running Past (1971), Peter Campus’s Head of a Misanthropic Man (1976–1978), Nancy Holt’s Underscan and Prager’s Crowd #5 (Washington Square West) (2013).

A rotating display of time-based art is an important aspect of the media arts initiative at the museum, which includes acquisitions, exhibitions, educational programs, and archival research resources related to film, video, and the media arts.


Smithsonian American Art Museum is located at 8th and F Streets NW.
