A weekend of residential sculptures and fountains, of beer and drag kings – not queens – is in your future. Check out what the District has to offer this weekend.
Turf and Terrain Twilight Tour
Every other year, Arts in Foggy Bottom places unique, contemporary sculptures in the front gardens of private Foggy Bottom homes as part of an outdoor exhibition. Take a free tour of the sculptures led by the curator and, for the 21+ crowd, enjoy a wine happy hour following the tour.
