Tech Friday: 2001 At the Smithsonian

D.C. has a run of great exhibits up, outsider art and Sally Mann at the NGA. A new show celebrating Burning Man at the Renwick, and opening this weekend, a tribute to the 50th Anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey at the National Air and Space Museum.

It’s always been a great museum city, if a bit staid. Not any more: both range of content and curatorial voice at museums public and private have been thought provoking, even confrontational, and led to packed shows and city-wide buzz.
