Get ready to clown around this weekend with a fun scavenger hunt, an eye-catching art exhibit and an out-of-this-world circus experience.
Chromatic Scale at the National Museum of Women in the Arts
Celebrate the last day of Women’s History Month with a trip to a museum dedicated to showcasing female artists. Their current exhibit, Chromatic Scale, features bright colors and abstract motifs from contemporary artist Polly Apfelbaum’s prints. The exhibit highlights printmaking, a medium that was popular for women in the early 16th century, according to a release. Apfelbaum’s work opened this month and features vibrant colored absract prints made from wooden stamps that she carved, inked and stamped individually.
National Museum of Women in the Arts, 1250 New York Ave. NW. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. $8.
Great Race Scavenger Hunt of D.C.
If you’ve got wanderlust and a knack for fierce competition, practice for The Amazing Race by competing in the Great Race Scavenger Hunt of D.C. See the tucked away parts of the District and enjoy the outdoors while your team races against the clock to retrieve items from five to six locations around the city before time runs out. Once you reach a checkpoint, special tasks for extra points will be assigned. Prizes and awards will be given out to teams that make it to the finish line. Only public transportation is allowed, so lace up your sneakers and bring a Metro card loaded with money.
Meet at Krispy Kreme, 1350 Connecticut Ave. NW. 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Race starts at noon. $20 per person.
“Out Of This World” – Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
Finish off the weekend by seeing “Out Of This World” put on by the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus. The circus puts a twist on the traditional circus experience by taking the audience on a journey through space, complete with all the usual acrobatics, clowns and lions you’d expect from a circus. The family friendly event is perfect if relatives and friends are in town to see the cherry blossoms. This will be the final performance put on by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey in D.C. before they close their almost 50-year-old company in May, according to their website.
