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.

Monday
'What Candidates Are Really Made of and Other Famous Faces' at Sixth and I Historic Synagogue
Pop artist Hanoch Piven constructs portraits of politicians and other celebrities using found materials like bubble gum, light bulbs and electrical wire.

Tuesday
'The Lorax' at the National Building Museum.
This interactive reading of Dr. Seuss' classic tale of environmentalism, "The Lorax," is targeted at children 3 and older.

Wednesday
Post-Election Hangover Parties at Top of the Hill and 18th Amendment
No matter whether your candidate wins or loses the election, the Washington Post Express is throwing a party for you, complete with free beer.

Thursday
'Inside and Out: Recent Trends in the Arts of the Dominican Republic' at the Inter-American Development Bank's Cultural Center
Eight contemporary artists, four of whom live in the Dominican Republic and four of whom live abroad, exhibit art pertaining to issues of identity.

Friday
90th Anniversary of the End of World War I at The National Archives
The National Archives marks the 90th anniversary of the end of World War I. Archivists Timothy Nenninger, Mitch Yockelson and Rich Boylan discuss the Archives' holdings related to the war, and authors Edward M. Coffman and Douglas C. Waller provide historical context and talk about why the American experience in the Great War is nearly forgotten.

Saturday
'Children of Divorce' at the National Gallery of Art
Silent-era starlet Clara Bow plays a flapper who tricks her boyfriend (a very young Gary Cooper) into marrying her. Naturally, complications ensue. This silent film, part of the National Gallery's Josef von Sternberg film series, will be accompanied by live music.

Sunday
Cultura! at the Renwick Gallery
An afternoon celebrating Italian culture includes wine and cheese tastings and a recital featuring Italian songs sung by tenor Antonio Giuliano.

Monday
Previously on Lost at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage
The name of this Brooklyn rock band should sound familiar -- if only because they're the first words heard on each episode of "Lost." Each week, the group writes a new song based on the events of the previous episode of the show. At this concert, they'll perform songs from their recent album, "The Tale of Season 4 and the Oceanic Six."
