Pickle Pea Walks

Pickle Pea Walks presents opportunities to walk and talk with historical characters from our nation's history. Pickle Pea Walks premiered last summer with three walks, each about the White House from a different vantage point and each exploring a different route in the White House neighborhood. Each walk is led by an actor playing that particular character. Join a walk during the 2017 season, which meets on Saturdays and Sundays from March 25 to September 3.


Four Seasons at Hillwood Estate

For the first time ever, Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens features an art installation in its gardens. Based on Giuseppe Arcimboldo's series of paintings entitled The Seasons completed in 1563, artist Phillip Haas has made 15-foot tall installations made from giant fruit, vegetables and flowers. Each season is covered, and visitors will be able to closely examine these distinctive "sculptures" on Hillwood's manicured grounds. Exhibit runs through March 31.
