Art and History in Wintery Washington, DC

The Smithsonian gets the name recognition, but Washington is full of great galleries, museums and historic sites. Try a free tour of the Folger Shakespeare Library, the largest collection of the Bardís printed works on Earth, or check out the National Gallery for its series of portraits by Picasso through Jan. 18th. For something edgier, go to a rumination on atomic power by installation artist Jim Sanborn at the Corcoran gallery through Jan. 26th. And, hereís an odd way to experience history: Through the end of the year, catch performances of Dickensí ďA Christmas CarolĒ at Fordís -- the theater where Lincoln was assassinated.
