Radio Bingo

Thursday, 04/12/2018 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Get a bingo card and a glass of beer (or wine) and keep your ears peeled for songs listed on your card. Do you have the music recognition skills to outlast the competition? You could win major awards! It’s more fun than should be allowed on a Thursday night… but it is… we checked. We’ll rotate the genres each week (Hip Hop; Country; Pop; Rock; Decades). Here’s how it works: You get a bingo card with your initial purchase of a beer or wine, and additional cards can be purchased for $2 each. The proceeds from the additional cards will go to support wounded warriors through Azalea Charities. Music will play over the speakers, and if you correctly identify the song, and it is on your card, you mark that song. If you get 5 in a row before everyone else, you’ll win a major award. And as an added twist, if two or more people get bingo at the same time, we’ll have a dance-off to determine the winner (by popular vote of course). Visit the taproom every Thursday night 7-9pm to join the fun! Attachments

Math in Motion: What Dance can tell us About Motor Control

Thursday, 04/12/2018 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The Arts and Engineering are not typically considered complimentary approaches, but it takes technical competence to be a successful artist, and artistic skills to be a great engineer and scientist. For example, dance choreography requires coordinating the music, lighting and body motions to establish the mood and intention of the piece. In a similar way, scientists define a question, form a hypothesis and intricately coordinate experiments and analyses to rigorously test the theory. A unique collaboration between the George Mason School of Dance and the Department of Bioengineering is currently combining these approaches to examine how the human brain is able to precisely control movement. We are specifically examining dancers' ability to adjust trained body motions from one spatial layout to a new, untrained layout. This is similar to performing on different stages with little practice, such as one performance at the Kennedy Center followed by a performance at the Hippodrome. These transformations between different spatial layouts are very mathematically complex, yet dancers are able to perform these computations effortlessly, revealing a highly sophisticated motor system. Thus, this study is a unique opportunity to quantify our sense of body awareness and examine the high level of intelligence required to perform complex motor skills. Our insights may be useful for understanding the development of motor expertise, which has implications for motor development, training and rehabilitation. 6:00PM: Doors open, food and beverages available 7:00PM-7:30PM: Scientific Discussion 7:30PM-7:45PM: Q&A 7:45PM-8:30PM: Meet the Scientist and Networking Reception Attachments

Circalyans:warriors of the untime

Friday, 03/23/2018 - Wednesday, 04/25/2018

Circalyans:warriors of the untime Donnamaria R Jones (On exhibit: March 6 – April 25, 2018) Fascinated by the indomitable spirit defining warriors of times past, present and imagined future, she has created an amalgamated league of conquerors, the Circalyan Warriors of the Untime, that transcend all time periods. The rustic, near life-sized portrait panels evoke the sheer might and domination of the eclectically adorned and armed combatants. Donnamaria R. Jones, a military veteran, is a portrait photographer based in the Washington Metropolitan area, and owns Circa Life Images photography studio in Waldorf, MD. The creative process behind the Circalyan Warriors was practically a full-on production featuring a makeup artist, special effects artist, studio set, custom made costumes, and of course, models - most, if not all, tattooed by Scotte "Bricks" Turner of Bricks Tattoo. But, of course, before the photo shoot, there was the original conception: Although Donnamaria was partially influenced by her martial arts background and her military career, she also acknowledges that the exhibit has some metaphorical significance as well. Donnamaria believes that each one of us deals with inner battles daily, even if not physically visible to those on the outside. The Circalyans could be considered the visual representations of these inner battles that we all experience. The scars, some authentic and some created, are considered the "spoils of victory”, and are often something we hide, rather than expose or celebrate. Meet the Artist April 7, 6-8 pm during our catered reception! Heavy hors d'oeuvres and wine will be served - free and open to the public.
