On Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m., the American University Museum will host a reception for five exhibitions that are joining the museum’s ongoing retrospective “Revelation: Major Paintings by Jules Olitski.”
The fresh crop includes shows by two longtime Washingtonians: “Inside the Underworld: Beetle Magic,” an insect-themed show by sculptor Joan Danziger, and a video by painter Carol Brown Goldberg called “The Color of Time,” created in collaboration with filmmaker Anthony Szulc.
