Join us for our virtual summer Small Works V art show, held by the Friends of the Yellow Barn Studio. Opening on Saturday, July 18 through Sept.1, 2020 on our NEW website: www.friendsoftheyellowbarnstudio.org
The show represents the works of both emerging and professional artist members of the Friends of the Yellow Barn, where all works are 14 x 14 inches and under! This annual show is typically held at the Yellow Barn Gallery in Glen Echo Park. At the gallery we welcome hundreds of patrons yearly to enjoy our small works show where the best works of art come in small packages! This year viewers will enjoy seeing our small works show online. The variety of works on display include all painting and drawing media such as: oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolor, mixed media, pastels, charcoal and ink. Be sure to visit this collection to see the work of some of our most talented local artists. All purchases will be handled directly with the artists.

Join Alan Hawk, the museum’s Historical Collections Manager, for a virtual event to learn how the “Spanish Flu” of 1918 spread through Montgomery County, Maryland, and its effect on its population. Then, explore how nearly a century after the pandemic, Montgomery County continues to play a role in characterizing and understanding the 1918 Influenza virus, as federal, civilian, and military public health agencies monitor incidences of emerging novel influenza strains that may arise worldwide. @MedicalMuseum on Facebook.

Learn about life during the Federal Period. Juniors will tour the historic house to “research” their role, then it’s time to pretend you’re a person living in the new capital city. Create some crafts, play games, and celebrate with a tea party of your own! Most steps to earn your badge will be completed during our program. Some programs include supplementary activities that must be completed after the program to finish the badge. Send in a photo of your completed activity to receive your Dumbarton House Patch!
By learning about seasonality, the labor of planting seeds, and how gardens were depicted in the Federal period, Girl Scouts and children from the general public will appreciate where their food comes from and recognize the importance of gardens in the past and the present. Registration includes a tour of the house, a garden activity booklet, and a real planting to take home!
Register for a time slot and if your child is a Girl Scout, she will complete all the necessary steps to earn her Gardener Badge! (She will receive a Dumbarton House patch, but we do not provide the badges.)
This is a socially distant, in-person program. Masks are required, hand sanitizer is provided, and capacity is limited to ensure social distancing.
