A friend recently shared with me that the Corcoran Gallery of Art is introducing a promotion called Free Summer Saturdays beginning May 29 and ending September 4, 2010. Since, it's a private museum and not part of the Smithsonian which are always free, this is the prime time to take advantage.
Last time I was at the Corcoran was for the 1869 Society's Annual Artini fundraiser in March. It's a beautiful museum with many diverse works of art. During the summer, they will offer free guided tours, demonstrations and programs for families (for free or at minimal cost). I already see a few that I'll be registering for.
If you've never been to the Corcoran or haven't been in a while, this is the perfect chance for you to take advantage of seeing amazing art for the low cost of nothing. They also have a full service cafe so make a day, or even a date, out of it.
