1. The National Gallery of Art is hosting Virtual Artful Conversations today through Sunday. Recommended for ages 7–12 with an adult companion, the program explores works of art from the museum’s collection followed by creation of your own art led by museum educators. Sessions take place at 4pm today, 2pm tomorrow, and 10am on Saturday and Sunday. Register through the link.
2. If you’re ready to enjoy a DC adventure that takes place indoors, the International Spy Museum just reopened. They’ve implemented new plans to slowly and safely welcome back visitors that include limited capacity, 100% outside air setting, floor markers for distancing, increased cleaning, and a few more measures.
3. There’s a new #BlackLivesMatter section on KFDC, compiling links, resources, and activities that have been featured among these Five Things and elsewhere on the blog. This is just a start — it will be continually updated.
4. June is pride month, and a bunch of bars and restaurants are celebrating with special deals — mostly cocktails, but at least one place has a very yummy sounding shake.
5. So excited that my friend Darcy shared new recommendations for reading, watching, and listening. I’ve discovered some awesome books and shows and movies and music thanks to her.
