Things to Do

Where & When: What to Do Tonight

Support an independent magazine, Washington art legends, and the military’s music

The Washington Color School is one of the most important artistic traditions to come out of this area. A new exhibit, “Washington Color and Light,” at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, celebrates that legacy of innovation. The show features galleries of abstract line-and-color-saturated paintings and a light sculpture by 81-year-old Robert Irwin. Through March 6.

Celebrate the second issue of the up-and-coming literary magazine the New Professional. The party, at the Black Cat, features a performance by Future People. The latest issue includes interviews with John Waters, Amy Arbus, and Jimmy Eat World as well as stories by local writers. 9 PM. Tickets ($10) available here.

If you love a man in uniform, catch the Army Blues—the jazz band of the US Army—at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. The group’s mission is to preserve the sound and style of big-band music. 6 PM; free.
