Both of the works in the Phillips by Washington, D.C., artist Andrea Way traveled just three miles up Massachusetts Avenue to be a part of her retrospective now on view at American University’s Katzen Arts Center. Michael O’Sullivan writes in the Washington Post:

The cure for winter blues is a good dose of beautiful light. The museums of D.C. are here for you! Find Leo Villareal’s Scramble (2011) on view in our house and his Multiverse (2005-2008) installed in the National Gallery of Art Concourse. The Hirshhorn’s Cube Light (2008) is on display with their Ai Weiwei: According to What? exhibition. 40 under 40: Craft Futures at the Renwick Gallery includes the private light experience that is Nick Dong’s Enlightenment Room (2008). And if neon is what you crave, Nam Jun Paik’s Electronic Superhighway: Continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii (1995) is a buzzing presence in Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Paik exhibition. Have a seat and gaze forth.
