(June 9-30) Art Every Day

You can only get Art Beat five days a week, but Artisphere in Arlington presents "Art Every Day" through the end of June. The project features the murals and site-specific installations of local visual artist Linda Hesh at Artisphere and on 62 of the tables at the Pentagon City Mall's food court. You're invited to interact with the works through photo posts on Facebook, if you're into that kind of thing.

(June 9-July 17) The Great Dinosaur Mystery

Starting today, you should not be caught off guard by dinosaur sightings at Glen Echo Park. "The Great Dinosaur Mystery" brings Doctor Vander Plastercaster and Detective Joe Kafootsie to the Park's Puppet Company Playhouse to help decipher dinosaur messages. Prehistoric puzzles plague the duo through mid-July.

(June 9-Sept. 5) Capitoline Comes To Capital

The Capitoline Venus isn't exactly prehistoric, but the famed nude statue packs some historical heft while attempting to cover up. One of the best-preserved sculptures from Roman antiquity leaves Rome for the first time since Napoleon stole it for a summer in the District. Six feet and six inches of sculpted marble modesty are on view at the National Gallery of Art through early September.
