Free and Easy Events

By Fritz Hahn

Every week, the Going Out Gurus suggest ways to enjoy Washington's cultural scene without spending any money. Have an idea for us? Send it to events@washingtonpost.com.

Tuesday
'Of Rage and Redemption: The Art of Oswaldo Guayasamin' at the Art Museum of the Americas
Ecuadorean painter Oswaldo Guayasamin's canvases are a mixture of attractive landscapes, portraits of indigenous peoples and vicious political works inspired by the turbulent 1960s and '70s.

Wednesday
ESPN Zone Sports Spelling Bee at ESPN Zone
The National Spelling Bee is in Washington this week. Don't think you can handle words like "poikilotherm"? Check out the alternative at ESPN Zone, where spelling "Yastrzemski" and "Krzyzewski" correctly wins big prizes.

Thursday
Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver at Millennium Stage
Quicksilver became one of bluegrass's leading lights in the late '70s and early '80s, mixing the driving rhythms of Bill Monroe with tight, gospel-style harmonies. New albums by the reunited band show the music is as strong as ever.

Friday
'The Graduates' screening at Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse
Two 20-something Maryland natives shot this buddy picture in Ocean City last summer, and now they plan to take it on the festival circuit. Doors open for this special screening at 9 p.m., and admission is on a first-come, first-seated basis.

Saturday
Herndon Festival
Live music from local bands, fireworks, carnival rides and an arts-and-crafts show are the draws at Herndon's annual party.

Sunday
'Benjamin Jurgensen: Don't Ready to Die Anymore' at Meat Market Gallery
Recent Corcoran College of Art and Design grad Benjamin Jurgensen has much to say in his bold new works.

Monday
'Scott G. Brooks: Under the Skin' at Long View Gallery
The pop surrealist's new work features his trademark wide-eyed figures in meticulously drawn settings. Make time, as you'll want to linger.
