DESIGNER WEEKENDS: PUMP ME UP DC

As you all know, this month we're taking a break from Design 101 tips and tricks to share our insight into the Making of a Show House.  If the 2013 DC Design House isn't enough reason to visit DC this spring (the house is open April 14 - May 12), follow our Designer Weekends this month, where we'll be sharing insight into other happenings around the capital! What's cool this weekend?  Pump Me Up: D. C. Subculture of the 1980's, curated by Roger Gastman, at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.  Through the exploration of visual art, the exhibit takes you back to an era when DC was coined the nation's "murder capital".  In a city that was rife with drugs, corruption, and violence, came a creative art and music subculture that expanded little past the geographical area, representing an artistic flavor that DC could claim it's own.  The exhibit displays an incredible collection of posters, photographs, graffiti, and more.
