Admire 15 works of DC’s own Gene Davis, whose polychromatic striped paintings on large canvases continue to breathe new life into the rooms in which they’re displayed. Some of the works are nearly 20-feet-wide, creating dynamic and immersive experiences that were well ahead of their time. The pop-art exhibit pops off with a Hot Beat Dance Party on Nov. 19 (8-11 p.m.), which is sure to add a lively soundtrack to the ‘60s-era rhythmic striped paintings.
