July 4th Beer Garden at the Hirshhorn

By Julia Beizer

Before the fireworks, cool off with a beer on the Hirshhorn patio. (Julia Beizer - The Washington Post)

Sorry for the late notice, folks, but if you're heading down to the Mall today and are in the mood for a cold, frothy beverage, make the Hirshhorn your first stop. On the Fly, D.C.'s roving band of SmartKart vendors, has set up a beer garden on the Mall side of the museum's patio, with space for a couple hundred people. It will be open until 10 p.m.

All are welcome to make their way within the gates and take advantage of the chairs, but those who want to drink will have to have their IDs checked before they can buy tickets for drinks. Miller Lite, Yuengling and glasses of California chardonnay are $5. On the Fly treats like grilled-chicken sandwiches and hot dogs are also available.

There is a work of art in that picture. It should be identified and attributed.
Julia Beizer would most likely not be happy if someone published her images without proper attribution: the artist of that work deserves no less.
BTW, it looks like its a Roy Lichtenstein.

Hey lostinthemiddle. You're absolutely right; it is a Lichtenstein work. The piece is called "Brushstroke."
