DC is expected to get 5-8 inches of snow this Saturday...If you're not into making snow angels, here are 5 ways to keep warm this weekend:

1. Indulge in 80's nostalgia at the Hirshhorn's "Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980's" exhibit. 
"An expansive exhibition exploring the pivotal moments in the 1980s when artwork became a commodity and the artist, a brand. Razor-sharp, witty, satirical and deeply subversive, the nearly 150 works in “Brand New” examine the origins and rise of a new generation of artists in New York City who blurred the lines between art, entertainment and commerce, a shift that continues to define contemporary art today." 

2. Tour Washington, D.C.'s first supportive housing for formerly homeless veterans & explore the National Building Museum's "Making Room: Housing for a Changing America" exhibit.
"Tour the John and Jill Ker Conway Residence, completed in 2016, with lead project consultant Chapman Todd from Community Solutions and DLR Group senior associate Robert Widger, RA. The Residence includes 60 units of permanent supportive housing (PSH) for formerly homeless veterans, 17 PSH units for formerly homeless individuals referred by the District’s Department of Behavioral Health, and 47 affordable units for residents at or below 60 percent of the area median income.This tour complements the exhibition Making Room: Housing for a Changing America, which is on view at the Museum through September 16, 2018."

3. Check out Jerusalem in 3D at the Nat Geo Museum.
"Soar high above the ancient city of Jerusalem—a city of many religions and an important crossroads of civilization. Unprecedented access to the city’s holiest sites, as well as rare and breathtaking aerial footage of the Old City and the Holy Land, combine to make Jerusalem 3-D a unique and stunning cinematic experience."

4. View 75 Years of the World’s Best Photography at the Newseum.
"A groundbreaking photography show featuring seven decades of award-winning images from the archives of Pictures of the Year International (POYi), one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious photojournalism competitions. These images depict the people and events that have defined our times, capturing war and peace, disaster and triumph, and the social and cultural shifts that have shaped the past 75 years."

5. Take a walk through memory lane with the Nostalgia Cocktail Flight at Barmini.
The Nostalgia Cocktail flight was inspired entirely from memories of when we were younger, from the feeling of Saturday mornings watching cartoons and eating cereal, to the wonder that comes from seeing magic tricks come to life.
