Each summer between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the Corcoran Gallery of Art drops its admission fees on Saturdays, offering their impressive and engaging collection to the community. As of last weekend, the gallery’s Free Summer Saturdays have begun.

Ontop of free admission, the Gallery offers complimentary tours, family workshops and special programs throughout the season. Programs this summer are inspired by their summer exhibition of painter Richard Diebenkorn’s lauded Ocean Park Series (opening on June 30). Events include the opportunity to create your own cigar box artwork inspired by the color planes and angular structures of Diebenkorn’s work.

Their exhibition of beach photography, “The Deep Element: Photography at the Beach,” will accompany an array of other beach-inspired exhibitions and activities. They are even offering yoga sessions, taught by Christine Saladino of Tranquil Space, throughout July.
