Grab a beer from this month’s sponsor brewery, Atlas Brew Works, while touring the museum’s first floor and shopping local, immigrant makers.
This month’s First on First event will highlight the work of immigrants. Artist and author of the cook book “Cook Korean!” Robin Ha will present her work alongside designer and owner of Printed Wild, Eva Calonder. Visit a special exhibit in our new Carriage House Gallery featuring works by artist and immigrant Lily Spandorf. Then, design your own flag at our activity table, creating a take-home piece of art.

Brewmaster Studios, located in our historic carriage house, regularly participates in First Friday along with local Dupont Circle galleries and studios. Please visit their website to view their program schedule.
