Through Dec 31: Italian Renaissance Art Tour at the National Gallery of Art

What better way to end the holiday weekend than a grand tour of Italian Renaissance paintings.  View works from masters of the early-13th to the late-16th century, such as Duccio, Leonardo, Verrocchio, Botticelli, Giorgione, Bellini, Raphael, and Titian.  Their works trace the rise of culture and ideals that manifested themselves in the revival of classical humanism.

Tour times: Mon–Sat at 2:30, Sun at 1:30
Location: National Gallery of Art, West Building, Sixth Street and 
                    Constitution Avenue NW. 
Admission: Free
Contact: 202-737-4215.

Also, tomorrow is the last day for another Italian exhibit, "Italian Master Drawings from the Wolfgang Ratjen Collection: 1525–1835," also in the West Building on the ground floor.
