The Smithsonian is celebrating Women’s History Month, March 1 to 31, with more than 10 events—performances, talks and family programs.
This year’s feature event is a family festival devoted to women in the arts. It will be held in the Kogod Courtyard of the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum on Saturday, March 6, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This day of family fun includes music and dance, hands-on art and stamp-collecting activities, and a special “red carpet” area for stars of all ages. The event is free and open to the public; no reservations are required.
This is the second event in the Smithsonian Heritage Months 2010 series titled “Tapestry of Cultural Rhythms.” Smithsonian units participating in this event include the Portrait Gallery, the National Postal Museum, American Art, the Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies, and the Smithsonian Heritage Months Steering Committee.
