This month, we’re devoting Designer Weekends to sharing all of the reasons why you should make a road trip to visit the DC Design House. Last week we posted a glimpse into the brilliant exhibit, “Pump Me Up”, showing at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
There are some other great museum exhibits in the DC area right now (check out the Phillips Collection!), but with winter nearly behind us we’re also craving time outdoors. Luckily in DC you can have culture, art, and outdoors all at once with the arrival of the cherry blossoms. The National Cherry Blossom Festival starts March 20th and runs through April 14th. Some of our favorite art highlights:
March 20th - April 7th
Via paddleboat, learn how to photograph the Cherry Blossoms at Sunrise with the help of Washington Photo Safari.
