(Through August 15) LEAN ON ME Even presidents need someone to lean on. In Woodrow Wilson's case, make that some THING. The Woodrow Wilson House on DC's Embassy Row is dedicated to all things Wilsonian. Its newest exhibit, My Third Leg showcases a selection of the President's own walking sticks, props that provide a glance at an American folk tradition tinged with history.

Sewing together silk and cotton, kente cloth and semi-precious stones, her work celebrates heritage and love of family.
