"Week 27, Ten Years" by Kara McGee is one of the pieces in The Semanas Project , currently showing at the Harwood Art Center.

All Year Round—While in Seattle, Lauri Dickinson and Cindy Blackstone visited an exhibit made up of work from two artists who had made one piece of art per week for the course of a year. The show inspired the duo to create The Semanas Project, in which they sent out an invitation to women around the country and abroad to create a single small autobiographical artwork per week during 2004. The result is an exhibit currently on display at the Harwood Art Center (1114 Seventh Street NW) featuring the work of 14 women artists. In some cases, all 52 pieces from a single artist are on display. In others, only a selection from the year's worth of work is included. A reception for The Semanas Project: 52 Weeks in 2004 will occur on Friday, Dec. 16, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. The exhibit runs through Dec. 21. For more information, call 242-6367.
