1. We can’t go in the National Building Museum right now, but you can stop by the west lawn (5th Street NW, between F and G streets) to see Murals That Matter: Activism Through Public Art, an exhibition featuring DC street art created earlier this summer in response to social justice protests in the nation’s capital and elsewhere. It will be on display from now through November.
2. Catch an outdoor flick and pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman at the Union Market Drive-In tonight. The weekly series is featuring the late actor’s films all month, this week showing the James Brown biopic Get On Up. The lot opens at 7:15pm, and the movie starts at 8:30pm. Parking fee is $20 — book in advance here. And see what else is playing at more drive-in movie series around the area this weekend.
3. The Interfaith Council of Metropolitan Washington is hosting its annual Unity Walk on Sunday. Although virtual this year, the walk will offer an opportunity to visit houses of worship and faith centers from Baha’i to Zoroastrian, participate in meaningful dialogue, learn a new recipe from a local chef, and partake in service projects. Learn more and register for it here.
4. In case you missed it yesterday, there’s a new post on the blog with a round-up of places to go in DC if you just want to chill out in a lovely locale: Serenity Now: 10 Places to Find Peace and Calm in DC.
