The Kennedy Center is sponsoring  Fantasy in Japan Blue, an exhibition in the Hall of States through November 12, 2017.

 

In honor of Japan’s historic ties to the Kennedy Center and its support of the newly renovated Terrace Theater, world leader in textile design and production Reiko Sudo brings her internationally acclaimed textiles to the Hall of States in a six-week exhibition.

 

Fantasy in Japan Blue features fabric made from natural material mounted on 115 open fans, a symbol of good fortune. Each fan is dyed to correspond to one of the 46 shades of Japanese indigo; however, only 46 are included in this display—Sudo’s nod to the 46 years of John F. Kennedy’s life.

 

Sudo is the co-founder, CEO, and design director of Nuno Corporation, a company that has been crafting some of the world’s most extraordinary textiles since 1984. Deftly weaving together the traditional and the cutting-edge, Nuno borrows techniques and processes from the chemical, automotive, brewing, and other industries while incorporating artisanal methods such as as hand-weaving and salt dyeing.

Chick Corea and Steve Gadd Band Live at Blues Alley Oct. 5-8

September 26, 2017

Chick Corea and Steve Gadd Band will be performing at Blues Alley October 5through 8, 2017.

 

This musical partnership is the stuff of legend. But the music is always new. Since Gadd became the very first electric Return to Forever drummer (true story), these two have turned out one game-changing record after another: The Leprechaun, My Spanish Heart, Three Quartets and Friends. Now, co-leading a band for the first time, they pick it up where they left off, this time with young guns filling out the lineup: Lionel Loueke, the Benininan genius on guitar; Steve Wilson, Chick’s Origin protege, on sax and flute; the great Carlitos Del Puerto on bass; and Venezuelan master Luisito Quintero on percussion. New studio album on the way, fall 2017.

Blues Alley is located at 1073 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown.
