On Aug. 17 and every Thursday evening in August, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Independence Avenue at Seventh Street, SW, transforms into the city’s most refreshing destination for dynamic art, after-work drinks, and thought-provoking conversation. Explore bold new exhibitions by renowned artists Ai Weiwei, Yoko Ono, and Markus Lüpertz, enjoy special tours of masterpieces of contemporary art, or just lounge by the fountain with friends. No two nights are alike, with different pop-up activities and live performances every Thursday.  The event is free and all ages welcome.
