Does downtown D.C.’s “arts district” really qualify for the title? Well, the organizers of today’s Arts on Foot open-house day have identified 23 arty sites in the area bounded by Pennsylvania Avenue and 4th, 10th, and H Streets NW, from the Washington Project for the Arts to the House Where Lincoln Died (well…), and each of them will be open to interested visitors today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Included among the activities are live music, dance performances, art-studio tours, films, talks by artists and actors, and, uh, blacksmithing demonstrations. A schedule of the events is in this week’s Washington City Paper and will also be available at the PADC Urban Arts Gallery, 425 7th St. NW; the National Building Museum, 401 F St. NW; and the Shakespeare Theater, 450 7th St. NW. FREE. (202) 724-9091. (MJ)
