Where: Hirshhorn Gallery of Art, Smithsonian
When: Check their calendar for dates
Why we love it: Alex Crane, Georgetown student and Corcoran intern, gave us the inside scoop:
"Probably my favorite art event in D.C. It only happens twice a year but it's such a great hybrid between art and nightlife. The museum keeps the galleries open late and offers tours until 10 p.m. Eventually everyone ends up migrating to the atrium area where the Hirshhorn always offers great musical acts and really out-there performance artists. After Hours has seriously broad appeal and the eclectic crowd makes the event that much more fun. Each After Hours I've attended has eventually devolved into an all ages dance party."

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
