Summer in The City arrives just in time to celebrate the season at 410 GooDBuddY.

(June 21-July 23) Summer in the City

We have now officially entered summertime and Northwest Washington's 410 GooDBuddY gallery has "Summer in the City" to celebrate the season. Local visual artist Ellen Hill portrays the natural world through large-scale panels of fragmented, carved, painted and inked wood. "Summer in the City" ends a little early: The works are on display through late July.

(June 23-August 28) Time and space in fragments

If you'd prefer some art about time over art about summer the Hirshhorn Museum opens "Fragments in Time and Space" on Thursday. The exhibition features portrayals of old friends time and space in a multitude of media, from the fragmentation of space in Cubism to the manipulation of time in experimental film.

(June 21) Music of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

For some summer music to set the tone there's no more obvious a choice than Ron Reid and Sunsteel playing Tuesday night on the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage. The Boston-based pan-jazz ensemble blends calypso and jazz music with plenty of steelpans and percussion to celebrate summer and National Caribbean Heritage Month.

Music: "Summertime" by Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong
