Art in the City After Dark.

There is so much art to see in Washington, DC. On of my favorites is the First Friday’s Dupont Art Tour. It’s an outdoor tour of various galleries in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of the city where hand-picked galleries stay open late. It free to enter the galleries and easy to spot something special. Until last week, I had not yet tried to get tickets for the Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden After Hours affair. It’s always a sell out and a perfect idea for a date or a night out with a group of friends. The museum is open until 10 pm while the event continues until midnight with a cash bar and live entertainment out in the open rotunda. If you have not done it yet, get on the list for July and get ready to get inspired. And bring your camera… photography is allowed in most areas. Enjoy my pics from last Friday.
