A virtual high school in Fairfax?…Lumen8Anacostia opens on Saturday…More metro fare hikes coming soon [News, 4.13.12]
EDUCATION | Fairfax County is looking at a proposal to create a virtual high school. (WaPo, 4/13)
ARTS | Lumen8Anacostia, a project funded by ArtPlace featuring 100 artists, pop-up spaces, live music, and performances along the commercial corridor of Anacostia, opens on Saturday. The goal of the three month project is to creatively use empty storefronts to showcase the history and culture of the neighborhood, in order to “bring people here, connect people and to give people a better understanding of what it’s like to live in Anacostia.” (WTOP, 4/13)
REGIONALISM | City Paper‘s Lydia DePillis questions whether a regional economic plan, rather than economic competitiveness among local jurisdictions, makes the most sense for the Greater Washington region. (City Paper, 4/12)
HEALTH | Chapters of the Susan G. Komen Foundation have restarted their grantmaking to Planned Parenthood affiliates throughout the country. (WaPo, 4/12)
TRANSIT | Metro board members approve fare hikes (Examiner, 4/13). The increases will go into effect on July 1. Needless to say, the changes are extremely complicated.
I have been very distracted this morning while trying to write the Daily by Google Art Project, a huge collection of extremely high resolution photos of art from museums around the world. I highly recommend that you don’t click this link if you have work to get done.
