Things to do: Tonight, between 6:00 and 8:30, you should swing by the opening reception of Meat Market Gallery's new show of artworks by Lisa Blas. Blas's work is all about national identity, historical narratives, iconography in civil war monuments--and the intersection of all of these things with day-to-day life in the present tense.

Also opening tonight is the DCist photo show at Civilian Art Projects--reception from 7:00 to 9:00. Panel discussion follows next Wednesday.

Of course, you already know where you're supposed to be on Saturday. From today's WaPo:

THE SCENE: See Through the Eyes of the Collectors of "Collectors Select" Tomorrow, some of the high-profile Washington collectors who designed the six differently themed mini-exhibitions on display at the Arlington Arts Center finally share their visions for their shows this weekend. They'll take the public on a tour of the galleries (each of which reflects the taste and collecting styles of its "curator"); Henry L. Thaggert, Heather and Tony Podesta, Daniel Levinas and Philip Barlow will discuss their favorite pieces and talk about the local scene. Free. Talk from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., followed by a reception from 6 to 8. Show through March 29. Arlington Arts Center, 3550 Wilson Blvd., Arlington. 703-248-6800.
