Join SAAM for the third and final program in this year’s exciting series that celebrates the ways Americans participate in our democracy—through art, music, storytelling, and service. The program features performances by D.C. hip-hop artist Tarica June, and bluegrass bands Steep Canyon Rangers and Seldom Scene. Inspired by the music, visitors can pick-up paint brushes to express what America means to them on a 20-foot community mural, post Instagram photos from around the museum that will stream in a live feed in the Kogod Courtyard by tagging their images with #AmericaNow, pose with artworks from the collection in a photo booth, write letters to active military service members, and share information about a favorite American artist by participating in a Wikipedia edit-a-thon. Come register to vote—the most basic form of American participation—with Rock the Vote.
Schedule of Musical Performances:
4-4:30pm: Tarica June
5-5:45pm: Seldom Scene
6-7pm: Steep Canyon Rangers
