PAST: ART: See works by DC artists Dana Ellyn and Matt Sesow at Marx Cafe in Mt Pleasant, opening on MON, Feb 24th, Free
DC's Dynamic Art Duo - and married couple - Matt Sesow and Dana Ellyn are at it again with a new show at Marx Cafe in Mt Pleasant.
Dana: "I'll be showing paintings from my new series inspired by the Cultural Tourism DC's Mount Pleasant Heritage Trail.

Matt: "I'll have a series of all new "Marx-inspired" paintings in the show, all in frames, and priced such that my Proletariat comrades can afford one of my original etchings..."
