The movie sets, rivaling real-world cities and monuments in their scale, have themselves become destinations for domestic and international tourists. Despite the fiction, they bear witness to a dynamic and changing China. Photographer Mark Parascandola, has spent five years photographing movie production sites and outdoor sets across China. FREE

Robin Rose: Conversations with Artists, 6:30-8pm at The Phillips Collection (1600 21st St NW). Robin Rose (b. Ocala, Florida; lives and works in Washington, DC) creates works in encaustic mixed with pigment and wax using subtle hues to produce his abstractions.

The texture of the paper and the amount of pressure applied while drawing determine the sound being recorded and played back. Rose sees his Scriptronics not only as a means of expression for artists but also as a potential therapeutic tool for those with autism or dementia. $12 or free as student
