Like many other D.C. area residents, I made my way in to work this morning from an electricity-free neighborhood, past a lot of large broken trees and a smashed car, and through some dark intersections. Friday night’s weather is still being felt. With weather on the brain, I decided to search our collection to see what images we have of storms aside from those I’m familiar with. I found it interesting that we have three works in the collection called Approaching Storm by three very different artists. But maybe I should be looking ahead, thinking positive, and instead find images of electricity.
