Dec. 16-Jan. 17, 2014: Bojagi & Beyond
You can see an exhibit at The Korean Cultural Center at the Embassy of the Republic of Korea that focuses on bojagi, a traditional Korean quilted wrapping cloth used for everyday and ceremonial purposes. Bojagi & Beyond features both traditional domestic styles and more contemporary designs by Korean and American artists. You can see the collection through January 17.

Dec. 17-Jan. 26, 2013: Aquarium
With winter break just around the corner, you and your little ones might have a lot more time on your hands. Starting tomorrow you can keep your youngest kids busy at Aquarium, a 45-minute-long play that runs through January 26 at Bethesda's Imagination Stage. The audience-participatory show is straight-forward enough for kids ages 1 through 5 to grasp, as they join friends Jack and Calypso on a journey to a magical, underwater world.

Music: “Hair - Aquarius” by Arthur Fielder & Boston Pops Orchestra
