Saturday is Art Museum Day, a national initiative to spotlight art museums. Don't bother bringing your wallet: For a single day, area museums that usually charge admission will waive the fee, or reduce it -- a kind gesture to get you in the door.
Make plans to pop into the Corcoran to see the museum's photography exhibition "How Is the World?" or head to the Phillips Collection to get in touch with your inner honeybee in the Laib Wax Room. At the Corcoran, Art Museum Day will serve as an early kickoff to the museum's annual Free Summer Saturdays promotion, which offers free admission and family activities every Saturday through Aug. 31.
