(April 26-29) The Nautical Yards
Built in the early 19th century, Washington’s Navy Yard is the U.S. Navy’s oldest shore establishment. Near Southeast has seen a few wars, some landmark scientific developments, and its fair share of changes in the neighborhood. D.C.’s force/collision ensemble channels that history in The Nautical Yards, performed at sunset today through Sunday at The Yards Park. Dancers, actors, and musicians weave together a story about two lovers separated by war using elements of water mythology and nautical tales.

Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights Era, and Beyond features paintings, sculpture, prints, and photographs by 43 black artists who documented a few decades of tremendous social and political change.
