(April 22) Earthy celebrations
Sunday is Earth Day and the District has celebrations big and small. If you’re looking to recognize your planet with the masses there’s a concert on the National Mall. Speakers will inspire, exhibitors will inform, and Cheap Trick will Surrender. If you prefer something a little more intimate, there’s an exhibit of Eco Art at The Water Street Project in Georgetown Sunday afternoon. Artists showcase works made from recycled and repurposed materials and provide pointers on how you can do the same.

(April 22-August 5) I Spy
For some photos from all over planet Earth the National Gallery of Art opens I Spy: Photography and the Theater of the Street on Sunday. The collection features images capturing everyday life in the urban environment from some of the form’s innovators.

(April 21) Experience Moksha
The University of Maryland’s own Indian classical dance team presents its annual showcase Saturday night at the school’s Hoff Theater. Moshka hopes to transport you to another place with some ancient moves and folk stories.
