Five Things for Today: February 22, 2021

Always fun to catch a glimpse of Hahn/Cock on the roof of of the National Gallery of Art

 

1. Artful Conversations, the National Gallery of Art’s monthly family program is back with a new session that introduces kids to works in the museum’s collection in fun, unique ways.  During this Sensory Sketching hour, participants will activate the five senses by sketching from observation while using their favorite kitchen spice! It begins at 4pm and is recommended for ages 7-12. Register here(FYI:  This also takes place on Wednesday, Feb 24, at 4pm.) See more about the museum here

 

2. I just learned that the Museum of the Bible is open from a friend who went there this past weekend.  I don’t know much about the museum, as we haven’t visited. (Full disclosure: I’ve never been super keen on going because of the Hobby Lobby ties and smuggling scandal.) But I’ve heard the exhibits are interesting and the building beautiful.  Hours are Thursday – Monday, 10am – 5pm.  Admission is $19.99/adult, $9.99/child online and $24.99/adult, $14.99/child walk-up, free for ages 6 and under.

 

3. How herd immunity works.

 

4. Currently reading Disappearing Earth by Julia Phillips, and it’s very intriguing and well written.

 

5.  Salud! 🍹
