— Rita Moreno dropping by the National Portrait Gallery “Dancing the Dream” exhibition Monday afternoon. The Grammy-Emmy-Oscar-Tony winner was in town for the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts gala that evening, one of many splashy events surrounding the annual Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s policy conference this week, so wonder what prompted her to do a bit of pre-shutdown tourism. . . Hmm — could it have been this stupendous portrait of Rita Moreno herself high-kicking it in “West Side Story”? Well, why not!
