(March 16) WHERE SCIENCE AND ART RENDEZVOUS WITH YOU The Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences rubs shoulders with the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology Wednesday night at the D.C. Art Science Evening Rendezvous. Forward-looking folks from the worlds of art and science speak about where the two disciplines converge at the Keck Center in Northwest Washington.

(March 16-27) THE TRADITIONAL STUFF For more art, less science you can pay a visit to Kentlands Mansion in Gaithersburg, where the multimedia works of three area artists are on display through the end of the month. You'll find expressionist depictions of people, places, and people in places.

(March 16-20) HYPNOTIZING COMEDY If your week has so far been lacking in laughs, you may want to stop by Northwest's D.C. Improv Wednesday night for Flip Orley. The curiously talented comedian invites audience members on stage and hypnotizes them into sketchy situations. Fear not! It's all in good fun.

Music: "Coronado" by Deerhunter
