For a brief, shining moment in the 1960s, Washington stood on the cutting-edge of contemporary American art. The painters of the so-called Washington Color School - Gene Davis, Kenneth Noland and Morris Louis, among others - created brilliant canvases that startled the eye and braced the spirit. But Washington Color School painting isn't the only native style to emerge from the nation's capital. A more recent group of artists, working in the medium of blown, fused, slumped, cast and cold-worked glass, can also lay claim to that distinction.

The evidence showed that the gang member grabbed a 12-gauge shotgun from his house, stormed down the middle of the street and fired into the chest of a man wearing the color of another gang. Then he turned the gun on a bystander and killed him, too. Eric Tate, 18, accepted a plea deal and was convicted of first-degree murder in both shootings. But he could still be eligible for parole at age 43. The reality in Baltimore is that a combination of pressures -- including an overloaded criminal docket and uncooperative witnesses -- leads to plea deals that can appear to be generous.

An 18-year-old alleged gang member who police said killed two men because one was wearing red, the signature color of a rival gang, pleaded guilty yesterday to two counts of first-degree murder. Eric Tate's plea arrangement, worked out by his attorney and the prosecutor and approved by Baltimore Circuit Judge Allen L. Schwait, means that Tate will spend no more than 50 years in prison for his crimes. Tate, who was to stand trial next week, admitted using a 12-gauge shotgun to kill Anthony Taylor Jr., 20, an alleged Bloods member, and Taylor's friend, Adrian Holiday, 19, a community college student who was not in a gang, in September in Baltimore's Barclay neighborhood.

School is not cool, math and history are a drag and most of what's left is just kind of ... well, boring. So what's a 17-year-old high school student who's still trying to figure out who he is and what he wants out of life supposed to do? Why, become a photographer and make movies, of course. Exhibit your work in one of the world's most prestigious museums. Post your videos on YouTube.com so your friends (but not necessarily your parents) can see them. Not every precocious teenager with a digital camera and a laptop computer loaded with PhotoShop and Windows Moviemaker gets to act out such dreams.
