Art of the Great Plains: Ledger Art and Activity

While much of the city is high-fiving over ol' Columbus, you might want to show the kids that not everyone benefited from his "discovery." At this Smithsonian institution devoted to American Indians—which is always free and is open every day of the year save Christmas—you'll find art, artifacts and interactive stations, as well as this hands-on workshop, in which tots make art based on a 19th-century ledger book from the "Infinity of Nations" exhibit. All ages.
