AU's Katzen always worth a visit
Universities in the area are probably the most underappreciated by arts patrons, and American University is at the top of the list. If you haven't been to the Katzen Center Museum, you should check it out. A new show opened Saturday with an incredible lecture at 5 pm about modernism, spirituality and religion in art. It was to introduce an exhibit by Anil Revri, sponsored by the Indian Embassy. My group spent a great deal of time on the 3rd level where Raoul Middleman's big, colorful, impressionistic and a bit racy paintings hang. Funny, I think most of us liked his smaller paintings which were not racy. The photos here are from other artists in the exhibit. Middleman will speak on Feb. 11 about his work at 4 pm. The next art opening will be April 5. See the Katzen schedule here.
