Dupont Kalorama Museum Walk Weekend

By Stephanie Merry

What do live jazz, woolly sheep and woodworkers have in common? They're all part of this annual two-day event, which allows visitors to stop by Dupont Circle museums free of charge. Among the traditionally entertaining stops is the Phillips Collection, which will be hosting its Jazz 'n Families Fun Days with live music, an instrument "petting zoo" and hands-on arts activities for kids. The weekend also marks the opening of two intriguing, monochromatic exhibitions -- "Robert Ryman: Variations & Improvisations" and "Pousette-Dart: Predominantly White Paintings." Meanwhile, the Textile Museum celebrates fabric artistry with a sheep shearing, embroidery demonstrations and woodblock printing. After that, head to the Woodrow Wilson House, where there will be wood-carving demonstrations in honor of the exhibit of the 28th president's walking sticks.
