(June 2-Sept. 9) Variations on a Theme

Summer is unofficially here and so are a number of unofficial acknowledgements of the sunny season. The Phillips Collection is taking note with a few major exhibits, including Jasper Johns: Variations on a Theme, opening Saturday. The museum celebrates the modern master's work for the first time with over 100 iconic prints of targets, flags, and numbers. Jazz musicians take over the museum this weekend to add to the ambience.
