Seven museums in the Dupont Circle and Kalorama neighborhoods will play host Saturday to a Museum Walk Day, an annual rite of June designed to introduce and reintroduce city residents to the wealth of history and art collections within a few blocks of one another in this Northwest area.
From noon to 4 p.m., the Phillips Collection, the Textile Museum, the Woodrow Wilson House, the Historical Society of Washington, the Anderson House, Meridian House International and Fondo del Sol will open special exhibits and offer craft demonstrations, guided tours, and special music and video presentations.
From 1 to 3 p.m. at the Fondo del Sol gallery, for example, the entertainment will be a performance by guitarist William Marple, who performs regularly at local cafes and concert halls.
A sculpture exhibit titled "Diferent Voices, Different Drummers" will feature works by outstanding Latino, American Indian, black and white sculptors in a variety of media, including fabric, wood, cement, stone and earth.
Admission will be free at all of the museums, each with their own entertainment and show openings planned.
