Friday, February 27: Friday Gallery Talk: Louise Bourgeois

An afternoon at the art gallery? How bourgeois! Louise Bourgeois to be exact. She's the artist responsible for the big honkin' spider living outside the Hirshhorn's entryway and the focus of a recently-opened exhibition of her work. She is also the subject of today's gallery talk, headed by local artist Cara Ober. Free.Hirshhorn, 12:30 PM.

Saturday, February 28: Kirikou and the Sorceress

Come enjoy this animated feature based on an African folk tale about a little boy who saves his village from an evil sorceress. In French with English subtitles. Free. National Museum of African Art, 1 PM.

Sunday, March 1: Art a la Cart

If you’re between the ages 7 and 12, come out to the American Art Museum (with your parents, of course) for some hands-on fun that will allow you to explore the world of art on a whole new level. Interactive carts are scattered throughout the gallery—see if you can find them and then expand your understanding and appreciation of fine art. Free. Repeats the first Sunday of every month. American Art Museum, 1-3 PM.
