The Arts Shutdown

This shutdown sucks.

Especially if you live in the DMV (that’s the District of Columbia/Maryland/Virginia).

A pre-teen friend of the family was staying with us for a couple of days. We were going to go hiking in a national park one of the days and even though the park was technically closed… well, there are work arounds. But it was raining too much, so I can’t blame the shutdown on that.

But what do you do with a child that age when you’re looking for things to do? If you live in DC, you take them to a museum. They’re fun, free, and awesome.

Ugh.

Here’s a piece from Hyperallergic called Taking Stock of the Shutdown’s Continued Impact on the Arts that you should check out.
