If you need a distraction from the heat, the District’s outdoor film festival Screen on the Green returns to the National Mall tonight with In The Heat of the Night. Sidney Poitier stars as a no-nonsense cop trying to solve a murder in a small, racist Mississippi town. The screen is between 8th and 14th streets. The series continues on Monday nights through mid-August.
If you’d prefer to avoid the swelter indoors, local musician Sarah Fridrich takes to the stage at Northwest Washington’s Black Cat tonight as one half of Ms. Fridrich. She plays the keys and belts out the ballads while drummer Dan Marcellus provides a one-man rhythm section. The two are trained in the fine art of jazz, but are suckers for emotion-laden pop songs.
Germany’s Bauhaus arts school was only around for 14 years, but it’s had a lasting impression on both modern design and art education. The National Gallery of Art explores the institution’s influence in Publishing Modernism: The Bauhaus in Print. Woodcuts, lithographs and engravings are on display through late October.
Music: “Rodeo” by Ms. Fridrich
