In the National Academy of Sciences’ Cheryl Goldsleger: utopia,the artist evokes the politically charged work of idealistic, innovative women architects. Using a computer program and a three-dimensional printer, Miss Goldsleger transforms architects’ sketches into 3-D forms of encaustic and resin. For example, Miss Goldsleger makes a 3-D form of Marie Stevens Howland’s 1885 “Kitchenless House for Pacific Colony, Block Design” in Sinaloa, Mexico, a housing unit of four private houses with common kitchen and laundry envisioned by the architect, a collective housekeeping advocate. At the Gallery, Academy of Sciences, 2100 C St. NW. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays through Feb. 1. Free. 202/334-2415.
