Ladies’ Choice Movie Series in December

This month we thought it would be nice to cozy up and close out the year by showcasing a couple of movies that we like.  We'll be screening one of Tracy's favorites, X-Men: Days of Future Past, from 2014. With an all-star cast that includes Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence and Halle Berry, this latest X-Men instalment sees Wolverine getting sent by the X-Men to the past in an attempt to prevent a calamitous future for both humans and mutants.

See/Line - Graffiti Along the Red Line

In Washington, D.C., the most accessible art form isn’t in the museums, it’s on the metro. And nowhere within the city’s transit system can you see more art on the walls than on the red line train between Union Station and Silver Spring. For years, the ride along this section of the red line has showcased various works done illegally by graffiti writers. Big, colorful, boisterous tags advertising the names of unknown assailants.
