Tag Archives: DC Weekend April 14

Join a Community Celebration at the National Gallery of Art this Sunday!


A visit to the National Gallery of Art makes for a great family outing any time, but this coming weekend will be an especially fantastic time to go. On Sunday, April 14, join the museum for a Community Celebration of the opening of Oliver Lee Jackson: Recent Paintings where there will be performances and activities for all ages that weave the rich sounds, rhythms, and colors of jazz with visual art.

Among some of the fun and festive ways to enjoy the day, you can:

  • Create Oliver Lee Jackson-inspired collages
  • Make your mark by contributing to a giant community puzzle
  • Engage with works of art and Gallery educators with hands-on activities
  • Soak in live jazz from DC native and saxophonist Herb Scott
  • Experience poetry by spoken word artist Charity Blackwell & create your own
  • Celebrate the diversity of Washington, DC, with Faces of DC, a photo mural starring faces of the people we encounter every day. (Located at 7th Street & Madison Drive NW)
  • The Community Celebration will take place in the East Building, 11am – 5pm. More information, including the schedule of activities and details for getting 20% at the cafe museum caf├ęs, is available on the National Gallery of Art website.
