The Smithsonian National Museum of Asian Art , 1050 Independence Ave SW, Washington, DC 20560

From May 1 to May 14, America’s first national museum of art will mark its centennial by hosting the inaugural festival in this five-year initiative. Programming includes headline performers—internationally acclaimed singer-songwriters Eric Nam and Raveena—plus panel discussions, interactive experiences, culinary adventures, art-making projects and programming from the Middle East, Asia and America’s Asian American communities. The museum’s partnership with Bank of America will greatly expand the museum’s public programming, both within its galleries and on the National Mall, ensuring that Asian arts and culture reach the broadest possible audiences.

Catch Nistha Raj & Christylez Bacon present their collaborative project "Hip Hop Meets the Music of India" on Saturday, May 13th from 5-6 PM.
