(May 26-July 17) MUCH LIKE REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE Artisphere on Wilson Boulevard in Arlington has "Contain, Maintain, Sustain" through mid-July. Artists from across the country and beyond explore the influence of the sustainability movement on contemporary art with sculptures, video and collage. The exhibition examines how the use of a particular resource can change the meaning of a particular artwork.

(May 27-June 19) MAN AND MANSERVANT MISADVENTURE A man and his manservant find musical misadventure in "By Jeeves". The Andrew Lloyd Webber production, based on the novels of P.G. Wodehouse, follows Bertie Wooster and his unflappable valet Jeeves in a comical tale of mistaken identity that ends up being a testament to the triumphant nature of love. It's showing at 1st Stage in Tysons Corner through mid-June.

(May 29) FRIENDSHIP DANCE Dancing is already pretty great, but the National Museum of the American Indian has a Friendship Dance Sunday morning to kick it up a notch. Youths from nations north, south, east and west sing, drum and tell stories before wrapping up in the afternoon with a gift exchange that shows each nation's rich history.

Music: "Nahwia" by Baka Beyond
