(January 7) PERMANENT COLLECTION Combining the forces of art and theater, The Phillips Collection in D.C.'s Dupont Circle hosts an after-hours discussion about Round House Theatre's upcoming play, "Permanent Collection,". The session begins tonight at 6:30 during the gallery's "Phillips After 5" events. Thomas Gibbon's play revolves around the politics behind museum displays. The play's director, Timothy Douglas, hashes out issues of race and art with Phillips Collection curator Wendy Grossman and others.

(Ending January 10) MAN RAY IN AFRICA There are only a few more days to catch the Phillips' own display of African-themed art. The photos in an exhibit titled Man Ray, African Arts and the Modernist Lens come off the walls this Sunday. They show how the avant-garde photographer, born Emmanuel Radnitzky, brought a Western understanding to African art.

(January 8) BLIND BOYS DO IT BETTER No one does it better than the Blind Boys of Alabama, bringing their sweet harmony to downtown D.C.'s Warner Theater tomorrow night at 8 p.m. Heading into their seventh decade on stage, the Boys are joined by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band for a night of New Orleans sound.

(January 9) INSIDE MOUTH Flashpoint Gallery near Metro Center opens its newest exhibit, called Inside Mouth, with a reception Saturday night at 6 p.m. Jackie Milad's first solo show in Washington features spare, simple drawings that rob her subjects of their hair, forcing audiences to concentrate on face alone.
