VSA Presents Inclusive Design & Technology at Kennedy Center

July 25, 2017

The Office of VSA and Accessibility presents "Artful Innovation: Inclusive Design and Technology," an exhibition at Hall of States in the Kennedy Center through August 30, 2017.

 

Art pushes the boundaries of what we can imagine. Technology expands the boundaries of what we can do. Design facilitates the use of our talents and skills. Each can make possible what some thought impossible. The objects in this exhibition may be unexpected or even unimaginable. Sometimes they are beautiful; they are always functional. Their purposes vary, but they all represent creativity that includes people of diverse abilities, ages, and sensory and cognitive approaches to art and design. Art, design, and technology come together here to demonstrate the possibilities of the creative future.

 

The exhibition is free to the public, no tickets required, and may be viewed during open hours of the Kennedy Center.

Argentine Tango & Folk Music July 20

July 16, 2017

The Embassy of Argentina is hosting a night of Argentine Tango and Folk Music on July 20, 2017 starting at 6:30 pm.

 

Direct from Argentina, two path-breaking bands lead by women bring the best of Argentine tango and folk music to the stage. 

 

Lead by Argentine musical powerhouse Mavi Díaz, the band Mavi Díaz & Las Folkies is reinvigorating the rich folk traditions of Argentina with their original compositions, feminine point of view and electrifying live performances. Hailing from the colorful and gritty La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires, María Volonté: Blue Tango Project is a ground-breaking exploration of the emotional and musical crossroads where tango and the blues embrace. 

 

It is collaboration between Argentine Latin Grammy nominee María Volonté and California harmonica player Kevin Carrel Footer. Reception after the performance.
