Many of the festivities tied to the centennial celebration of the gift of the cherry blossoms are winding down this weekend. The National Cherry Blossom Festival itself ends Friday. The blossoms are long gone.
The National Gallery of Art’s blockbuster show “Colorful Realm: Japanese Bird-and-Flower Paintings by Ito Jakuchu” closes at 8 p.m. Sunday.
But the 25 public installations, curated by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, will be around for a while longer. The 5x5 Project, part of the Cherry Blossom celebration, installed art throughout the city.
To give people a way to view the public art, the agency has organized a bus tour Saturday. It begins at Arena Stage at 11 a.m.
The commission has set up a RSVP line at email@example.com. Send your e-mails with the 5x5 bus tour in the subject line.
