Luce Foundation Center for American Art




Luce Unplugged is a free, monthly local concert series held in the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Luce Foundation Center for American Art.

Thursday shows, presented with D.C. Music Download, are a tribute to a Luce Center artwork selected by the performer. Come at 5:30 p.m. to hear a discussion of the artwork, grab a drink from the bar (cash only!) or explore the Luce; at 6 p.m. the concert begins.


Friday evening Showcases feature two bands, selected by the Washington City Paper, a cash bar and free drink samples from a local brewery or distillery.
