'Question Bridge: Black Males' at The Phillips Collection

January 21, 2016

The Phillips Collection is hosting an exhibition Question Bridge: Black Males through February 28, 2016.

This documentary-style video art installation aims to represent and redefine black male identity in America. Since its inception in 1996, the project has recorded more than 1,600 questions and responses that illuminate diversity of thought, character, and identity in America’s black male population. The Phillips joins the more than 30 cultural institutions that have exhibited this compelling installation.

To foster honest expression and healing dialogue, the Question Bridge project allows one participant to ask a question while looking directly into the camera, and later another participant answers the question in the same way. The question-and-answer approach allows speakers to express their feelings on subjects that divide, unite, and puzzle. Artists Chris Johnson, Hank Willis Thomas, Kamal Sinclair, and Bayeté Ross Smith have documented dozens of exchanges in nine American cities and shaped that content into this engaging video installation. 

The Phillips Collection is located at 1600 21st Street NW.

Get Your Holiday Peel On

December 2, 2015

As reported earlier this year, master aesthetician Linda Hardiman is performing Dermatude's Meta Therapy (Medical & Esthetical Tissue Activating Therapy) non-invasive facials at Georgetown Salon & Spa, the first salon in the city to do so.

Now, she's introducing a brand new Murad facial peel with glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids along with indian fig extract and Vitamin C. “I love this peel because it's quick but super efficient. It leave the skin visibly smoother and more refined. It's great for anyone but especially prematurely aged skin, fragile weak skin and for sallow, dull complexions.” says Linda Hardiman.

The peel is followed by an eye lift concentrate treatment to hydrate and plump the eye area and a cooling recovery mask with chamomile, cucumber and sambucas nigra flower extract. There is little to no redness and no down time. The treatment takes only half an hour, handy in the busy holiday time.

The protocol is one a week for four weeks. Regularly priced at $85 per treatment, for the Holiday Season, there's a rate of $70 a treatment when purchased as a package of four. This offer is good through the end of January, 2016.
