Ever wish you could duck out of work by simply ducking?

(May 7-June 2) If you don't like Mondays

If you look around your workspace and feel like it could use some inspiration there's an exhibit of sculptures in Northwest Washington that could help. Baltimore-based artist Lisa Dillin asks a couple of questions about contemporary urban lifestyles in The Alternate Present, showing at Flashpoint Gallery through early June. The artist mostly focuses on our modern office environments, contrasting them with the natural world through wall-mounted clouds, colored lighting, and under-the-desk escape units.

(May 7-12) Look Both Ways (for street art)

The Kennedy Center is takin' it to the streets all week with Look Both Ways: Street Arts Across America. Don't be surprised to find an exceptional number of musicians, parades, puppeteers, chalk artists, clowns, and circus-types at your favorite public spaces, plazas, and venues.

(May 10) The Snake Fish

For some music from the streets of Israel, Hadag Nahash performs Thursday at the Fillmore in Silver Spring as part of the Washington Jewish Music Festival. The political hip-hop troupe blends rock, rap, and reggae sounds with Middle Eastern music.
