The Art of the Weekend
Ah, the summer weekend. Each one is a tug-of-war between the allure of basking in the sunshine and the appeal of staying inside to take advantage of the area's cultural offerings. Do you take a leisurely stroll or hole up in a museum? This weekend, the Dupont Kalorama Museums Consortium solves that problem by enouraging you to do both at the 22nd annual Dupont-Kalorama Museum Walk Weekend. For two days, you can explore seven museums, including the Phillips Collection, the Textile Museum and Woodrow Wilson House, all free of charge. The museums will open their exhibitions and offer activities for participants of all ages. Listen to poetry readings, see silent films or make a bird mask. Of course, if walking isn't your thing, free buses are provided to shuttle you from spot to spot. Seven museums should fill your quota of city culture ... at least until next weekend.
