The "three stars and two bars" take over Dupont Circle Tuesday night for Flag Day in the Flesh.
(June 14) Flag Day in the flesh
Happy Flag Day! If you're looking for a celebration to remember there's "D.C. Flag Day in the Flesh" Tuesday night in Dupont Circle. Devout District residents sporting D.C. flag tattoos gather to show a little civic pride and lament taxation without representation. Those without a permanent print of the “Three Stars and Two Bars” are invited to enjoy live music, speakers and an unflagging spirit.
(June 14) Fold it, pull it, pop it, turn it
Pop-up books have been relegated to the children's section of book stores, but they were used as educational tools in centuries past. "Paper Engineering: Fold, Pull, Pop & Turn" opens Tuesday at the National Museum of American History and features some of the earliest movable books documenting the moon's movements, the functions of human organs and much more.
(June 14-July 23) 'The Kids Are Alright'
Northwest Washington's Civilian Art Projects presents "The Kids Are Alright" through late July. New Orleans visual artist Dan Tague advocates for better government with wit and pathos and all sorts of media, including artfully folded dollar bills, propaganda posters and tastefully altered flags.
