Mar. 12-Aug. 17: Modern American Realism: The Sara Roby Foundation Collection
Modern American Realism: The Sara Roby Foundation Collection is on view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum through August 17. Chief Curator Virginia Mecklenburg selected the 70-plus paintings and sculptures in the exhibit and says you don’t have to know anything about art to understand what these introspective works are about: "Each piece provides some sort of avenue for thinking about who we are as individuals, how we function as social beings, what the human condition is… And so we think about being part of, if you will, a family of man that shares values, fears, anxieties, joys."

Mar. 12-16: Oklahoma!
It’s not too late to see Oklahoma!, which is on stage at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington through Sunday. Presented by Chalice Theatre, the musical is set in an early 20th-century pioneering community and follows a group of cowboys and farmers as they fight for love.

Music: “Midnight Cowboy” by Ferrante and Teicher
