"Art Beat" with Sabri Ben-Achour:

(Nov. 8-13) FOTOWEEKDC It is Fotoweek in DC and that means you'll find exhibits everywhere, from the Embassy of Sweden to Pepco. There are lectures with renowned National Geographic photographers on their stunning work, and workshops on how to improve your own photographic skills. Plus there's a contest you can enter for best mobile phone photo. There's a whole list of events at the FotoWeekDC website.

(Nov. 8-May 30) ONE LIFE And for some stills with a narrower focus, there's One Life: Katharine Graham at Washington's National Portrait Gallery through mid-2011. The Pulitzer Prize winning publisher of The Washington Post saw the paper through the Watergate scandal. She's remembered through her paper's front pages, as well as key photographs, drawings, and video interviews.

(Nov. 9-28) THE ODD COUPLE A peculiar pair takes to the stage at Washington's Theater J this month. Neil Simon's The Odd Couple follows Oscar and Felix, two middle-aged men coping with divorce, through the emotional and often comical vicissitudes of cohabitation.
