There are some good things to see at museums in Washington right now or in the near future. I'm going to do my best to see these exhibits over the next several weeks and write something about them here. In the meantime, see what you can see through the wondrous agency of our friend, the Internet.
- In Stabiano: Exploring the Ancient Seaside Villas of the Roman Elite, at the National Museum of Natural History (until October 24), which the Washington Post has not reviewed, so I'll do my best to take up the slack
- Dan Flavin: A Retrospective, at the National Gallery of Art (until January 9, 2005), reviewed by Blake Gopnik, . . . And We're Moths (Washington Post, October 3), with additional thoughts and reviews from Kriston at Grammar.police, Greg at greg.org, Tyler at Modern Art Notes, Felix Salmon, Mike Grass at DCist, Modern Kicks, and Lenny at Washington, DC Art News
- Calder Miró, at the Phillips Collection (open from October 9 until January 23, 2005)
- Washington: Symbol and City, at the National Building Museum (opens on October 9)
On Flavin, see also Michael O'Sullivan, Flavin's Enlightening Installations (Washington Post, October 8).
