Robison and Dyke worked on the project for ten years.
You see what art can do!
P.S. And, for the soul. Who needs medication when there's art like this to carry you away to faraway, dreamy places?
Reviews and notices of events in Washington, D.C. including, but not limited to, the performing arts, speakers, authors, lectures, meetings, books, movies, cycling, hockey games, exhibitions, buildings, and an occasional post about other places and things.
What else? The exhibition is much more than Millais. I just seem to be hung up on him.
In Jesus Washing Peter's Feet, 1852-56 by Ford Madox Brown (1821-93), Jesus was initially drawn shirtless, but the people demanded his chest be covered, and they got it.
All this and much more in the exhibition and 250+ page catalogue which describes and reproduces many of the 130 paintings on full pages of color, along with the sculptures, books, photographs, and decorative objects in the show. (Would you believe there's a gift shop at the end?)
The focus is a handful of female employees who worked at the Oak Ridge plant in the 1940s, workers who unknowingly assisted in the production of the atom bomb.
