Escape from the Hilltop: Wizards, farmers, and artists
Disapparate away from 37th and O Street for the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. If you don’t want to go to tonight’s midnight showing, grab your butter beer (err … buttered popcorn) and head to one of the many other screenings this Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
A last chance to harvest
Take Friday afternoon off to enjoy the fall weather down at the Plaza Farm Market at the Woodrow Wilson Center, where free samples are accompanied with some classic farm-stand entertainment. Capital Harvest on the Plaza, which runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., closes for the season after this week.
If you’re in the mood for an intellectual trip, visit the Phillips Collection to view “TruthBeauty: Pictorialism and the Photograph as Art.” The exhibit, which collected 130 photographs that span 100 years of photographic art, may make you think twice about the artistic merit of those snapshots you took at the Tombs last weekend.
Brush up on your vocab
Art and language intersect at Thomas Müller’s “Neither Here nor There,” currently on display at the Project 4 gallery. Check out the exhibit, which closes on November 27, to determine if Müller’s word sculptures are cromulent works of art or just embiggened ceramic letters.
Project 4 is located at 1353 U Street NW and is open from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.
