June 28 to Sept. 28: "American Metal: The Art of Albert Paley"
Distinguished metalsmith Albert Paley has been turning iron, steel and bronze into art for 50 years. Some of his large-scale, outdoor sculptural pieces, which he calls “architectural jewelry,” can be seen at locations throughout D.C., and this summer you can see more examples of his work at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. "American Metal: The Art of Albert Paley" opens tomorrow, when admission to the museum will be free thanks to its Free Summer Saturdays promotion.
June 28: The Lamont Street Collective Summer Bash
If you enjoy live music, art and craft beer you can swing by Lamont Street Collective, a community space in Northwest, tomorrow night at 8 p.m. for The Lamont Street Collective Summer Bash. D.C. indie-rock band Grogan Social Scene will play songs from its new album, Conceptual Arrangement, and indie-blues band Peyote Pilgrim will also perform. Local artist LA Johnson will exhibit works of art inspired by the headlining band's music.
