We need spring break, but for now, we just have the weekend to look forward to. Spend the next few days checking out an outdoor art exhibit, visiting a farmers market and learning how to liven up your apartment with plants.
Unity | Peace | Forward exhibit at The REACH
Developed by the Kennedy Center in collaboration with the International Programming and the Office of Accessibility and Very Special Arts, the installation Unity | Peace | Forward consists of each word spelled out in 5-foot-tall letters. Each letter in the word “unity” is painted by artists from the Northeast. Each letter in the word “peace” is painted in white letters and mounted on a wall of flags from around the world. And the word “forward” is backed by a two-story-tall white wall that holds projections of quotes from artists around the world about life, art, passions and the difficulties of this time period.
The REACH at The Kennedy Center, 2700 F St. NW. Exhibit open through Mar. 7. Quotes projected Friday and Saturday 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Free. Find more info here.
Arlington Fresh Farm Farmers Market
If you can’t make the Dupont Circle Fresh Farm farmers market on Sundays, check out the market in Arlington, Virginia, on Saturdays. From fresh-pressed juice by Senzu Juicery and grass-fed meats from Smith Meadows Meats to CBD products from Cannabreeze, you can fill up your refrigerator with goods from more than 30 merchants. You can pre-order from your favorite merchants here to avoid a crowd, and all guests are encouraged to shop quickly, wear a mask and keep a physical distance.
