Arts Roundup: Exhibitionist Eye Patch Edition

Good morning! Seems like it's de rigueur these days to begin a roundup with some musing on the weather, but I'm an indoor kid.
David Quammen's patrons aren't, though, and that's the problem: The subject of my colleague Amanda Hess' column this week runs the MOCA DC gallery in Georgetown and is facing eviction—partially because a performer, [...]
