NSO In Your Neighborhood

Part of the NSO’s initiative to perform out in the community, the orchestra’s Glenn Donnellan, Ruth Wicker Schaaf, David Teie and Jeffrey Wisner play a free Monday night show with dancing by students from the Dance Institute of Washington.


90s double feature

You’ve been there to rock out to your favorite band, but on Tuesday the Black Cat takes audiences for a cinematic trip down memory lane with back-to-back screenings of ’90s favorites “Can’t Hardly Wait” and “Clueless.”


Peter DiMuro curates Local Dance

Peter DiMuro, director of Dance/MetroDC, curates a selection of new work by choreographers in the area, including Wayles Hanes and Roxann Morgan Rowley. This is the first of three “Happenings at the Harman” events on Wednesdays in January. Next week’s program features a performance by violinist Chelsea Green.


Second Thursday Art Night: ‘Wintry Mix’

In addition to receptions for shows at the Art League and the Target Gallery, visitors at this free open house can peruse the works in the other galleries, make their own snowflakes and indulge their sweet tooth with refreshments and a candy buffet.


Opening reception: ‘Visual Audio

Celebrate the opening of the Honfleur Gallery’s newest exhibit, “Visual Audio: Inquiries Into Found Media,” a collaboration by Radio Transmission Ark and the Vernacular Preservation Society that combines atmospheric sounds, writings, drawings and more from the surrounding Anacostia community. Be sure to also stop at the Gallery at Vivid Solutions, where a new group photography show opens Friday at 6 p.m.


Last chance: ‘Chul Hyun Ahn: Illuminated Void

Closing Saturday, this exhibit displays the work of Chuyl Hyun Ahn, a Baltimore-based, Korean-born sculptor who creates light-boxes using fluorescent tubes, colored gels and mirrored glass. The Post’s Michael O’Sullivan says the show “will knock your socks off — or at least your shoes.”


Last chance: ‘Andy Warhol: Shadows

Few works of art are better suited to the uniquely doughnut-shaped Hirshhorn Museum than Andy Warhol’s “Shadows.” The series of 102 brightly-colored silk-screened canvases runs along the better part of the museum’s curved galleries. The exhibit ends Sunday.
