On Wednesday, June 21, Tenleytown Main Street will host the second annual Make Music Day Tenley, joining more than 700 cities worldwide to celebrate the summer solstice through music.


Wright on the Walls

Celebrating the 150th birthday of Frank Lloyd Wright, Wright on the Walls transforms a gallery into an interactive, large-scale "coloring book" inspired by the architect's work. 

Wright on the Walls features original interpretations of built and unbuilt Wright designs created by local artists Scott Clowney and Vlad Zabavskiy. Focusing on five areas of Wright's work—residential, commercial, houses of worship, automobile culture, and decorative details—the interactive space challenges visitors to add their own creative "color" to large-scale drawings printed on the walls, using shades and hues inspired by those used by Wright and his studio. The exhibit opens in conjunction with the Museum's Frank Lloyd Wright Day.


Invisible Things at Korean Cultural Center 

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, DC proudly presents Invisible Things, a new exhibition of painting, installation, and sculpture works by Korean artists Gyeongja Lee and Hyemin Lee.
