PAST: Highlights for things to do this SUN, Feb 27th!

From my Freestylin' D.C. feature on the City Paper Arts Desk


It’s the opening day of the National Gallery of Art's new show "Gauguin: Maker of Myth," and to celebrate, Mary Morton, curator and head of the department of French paintings at the NGA, and Belinda Thomson, guest curator, will give an introductory lecture, followed by a book signing ofGauguin: Maker of Myth at 2 p.m. at the Concourse level Auditorium, East Building, located at 401 Constitution Ave. NW.

Join Split this Rock founder and poet at 4 p.m. Sarah Browning for the “Split this Rock” Poetry Showcase featuring poets Jonathan B. Tucker, Samuel Miranda, and Sonya Renee Taylor. The reading–which has a $5 cover–speaks to the power of poetry in our public life and as a way to give voice to the voiceless. It's part of the Intersections Festival, which begins Friday at the Atlas Performing Arts Center, 1333 H St. NE.
