(Dec. 20-Feb. 27) BLACK BOX DE BEECK Belgian artist Hans Op de Beeck is something of a renaissance man when it comes to art. Op hops from sculpture, to photography, to animation and even short-story writing to portray scenes both real and surreal. Black Box showcases the artist's playful depictions of archetypal spaces at the Hirshhorn Museum on the National Mall through late February.

(Dec. 20-23) FICTIONS OF NATURE Sculptor Bill Moore gets playful with the animal kingdom in Fictions of Nature at Hillyer Art Space in Northwest Washington. Moore produces oversized bronze sculptures of insects, fish and birds in unnatural and fantastical situations. You can bear witness to tiger beetles in shining armor and other gems through Thursday.

(Dec. 21) HOMETOWN HERO D.C. rapper Wale has endless love for the DMV. That's the District, Maryland and Virginia, not the Department of Motor Vehicles. The self-proclaimed "Ambassador of Rap for the Capital" has gone from local sensation to national heavyweight with his witty wordplay and go-go-inspired beats. Wale plays Washington's 9:30 Club Tuesday night.
