Carolina Mayorga: PINK Ranchos and Other Ephemeral Zip Codes, 2-4pm at Art Museum of the Americas, Organization of American States (201 18th St NW). This site-specific multimedia project is the result of a year of artistic investigation on issues of home and homelessness and the artist’s infatuation with PINK.
