America’s Cold Civil War, 6-8pm at The Heritage Foundation: Allison Auditorium & Foyer (214 Massachusetts Avenue Northeast). Is America in a cold civil war? Many prominent thinkers think so.

As Americans grow apart in our understanding of these fundamental ideas, we seem to be becoming two distinct nations living in the same country. What remains unclear is where these growing differences will lead, if they can be resolved, and what principle will unify us in the future.

“Close to the edge” paintings by A .Fried, G. Kohon and L. Levinton, 6-7:30pm at Embassy of Argentina (1600 New Hampshire Avenue Northwest). A hasty look could indicate three very different ways of approaching painting.

It is not by chance that the three liberate the work of a specific plan. There are no sketches. The starting point is an idea that will navigate free through the canvas finding courses and channels and will overflow the margins. FREE
