I started out my career with a Bachelor of Arts from Indiana University in Anthropology focusing on Museum Studies and complimenting it with an Art History minor. I spent a few years as the Guest Services coordinator for the Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House in Chicago IL. It was there that I was able to truly experience the interplay between life and art. I love looking at what art says about the life we live, the life we hope for, and the life we try to hide. Since becoming a Certified International Tour Director that lesson has informed my commentary no matter what venue or city I am in. I am delighted to be working with Adventures for Creative Tourists to see what we can explore in artistry of Washington DC! The Nit and Gritty. Please Read Please arrive 15 minutes early to wait for Meghan. We are choosing this time because so many people arrive late, and miss the tour. I can't guarantee that you will find Meghan if you are 15 to 20 minutes late. But if you are a few minutes late, please call[masked]. Refunds are offered prior to the start of the tour. After the start of the tour there are no refunds.

Evening of Art, Music, Food and Beverages at Phillips Collection art museum

This is a really laid back, really fun way to see the Phillips Collection art museum. We'll meet in the lobby area around 7 and try out some of their "food and beverages" on the patio (heated) and explore from there. The live music is a huge highlight. It's usually surprisingly upbeat music, such as DC Go-Go. They also have a mix of unique experiences, such as hourly mini art tours and hands-on activities as well. Tickets are $12 and sometimes sell out. https://www.phillipscollection.org/events/phillips-after-5 Their description: "Phillips after 5 is a lively mix of art, entertainment, and live music on the first Thursday of the month. Food and beverages available for purchase."

About: Imagine different possible futures - for the intersection of computation and design, for the interaction between humans and computers, and for an expressive augmented reality. Now, imagine yourself in it. ​ We are thrilled to kick off our Washington D.C. 2020 season with Future Sketches, a collaboration with one of the most dynamic pioneers in the field of coding and interactive media. Zach Lieberman creates digital poetry through code, technology and theory. He writes his own software to create his artwork, and is a co-creator of openFrameworks, an open source C toolkit for creative coding. Future Sketches is the first solo exhibition of Lieberman’s work in Washington D.C., with an emphasis on his eclectic style of sketching with code for creative exploration. The installations presented draw on over a decade of work and research in the field of media art, exploring how the body, voice and gesture can be transformed in expressive ways. ​ Expect to be surprised at every corner, as the boundaries between the visible and invisible are broken down. The Nit and Gritty: I will be hosting this myself. There is an open bar that always has specialty drinks. You can find me by the bar :) Also there is only street parking And if there is action at the US Capitol traffic will be awful.
