Start your weekend with a dance performance at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, then stock up on spring clothes at a yard sale at Urban Outfitters. End your weekend with a bang at a dance party playing hits by Prince.
Head to the Hirshhorn Museum to watch a contemporary dance performance choreographed by The Washington Ballet in conjunction with an interactive exhibit. The show was created to complement artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s exhibit, Pulse. The exhibit includes interactive technology that takes a visitor’s heart rate and displays their pulse visually through mediums like flashing lights or rippling water. While watching the dancers move in tandem with the lights and sounds of the work, you can check out all the pieces in the exhibit before it closes on April 28.
Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Independence Avenue and Seventh Street SW. 12:30 p.m. Admission is free.
