Summer Deals at the Corcoran

By Stephanie Merry

Looking for even more ways to have fun for free this summer? The Corcoran hears you, and for the first time, the museum will offer free admission on Saturdays all summer long. The deal starts June 20 and runs through the end of August. For those keeping score at home, that means you can see the crazy, cool "Systematic Landscapes" by Maya Lin, a huge show of work from photographer William Eggleston and a special performance by Liz Lerman Dance Exchange without paying a cent.

The free Saturdays kick off with a family-friendly, eco-focused festival with free live performances, art workshops and theater.

Speaking of the Corcoran, the museum just announced its line-up of (non-free) summer speakers and there are some pretty interesting characters coming to town. The museum will host documentarian Morgan Spurlock (of "Super Size Me" fame) on June 2 (this event has been postponed), the aforementioned Eggleston on June 9 June 17 and Jamie Drake on July 14. Drake is the designer responsible for the interiors of many a celebrity home, including Madonna's and Michael Bloomberg's. Who knows? Maybe he'll even give some insight into what it was like working with the Material Girl.
