Free Summer Saturdays

Major changes are coming to the Corcoran in October, at which point the gallery's collection will be absorbed into the National Gallery of Art and George Washington University. So now is the chance to see this landmark D.C. institution before it is forever changed. You'll have an especially good reason to do so on Saturdays through August 30, when admission is free. In addition to the permanent collection, you'll want to check out Dutch photographer Rineke Dijkstra's "The Krazyhouse," a video installation of young people dancing. Also on display are photos by local artist Avi Gupta, who contrasts domestic interiors from India with those from the D.C. area, subtly illuminating characteristics of the people who reside within.
