A CREATIVE DC: THIS WEEK/NEXT WEEK

FIND YOUR ZEN. It's been a heavy week. Here are some truly adorable/sweet/smart kids doing yoga, as part of a sweetgreen in schools x Flow Yoga class I sat in on a few days ago. Learn more about sweetgreen's health, wellness, and nutrition program here (and here, too).

BALTIMORE. The social media imagery surrounding the protests, riots, and uprisings in Baltimore have been incredibly powerful. Kudos to The Washington Post's Nicole Crowder for offering the perspective of Baltimore native Devin Allen at The Post's In Sight blog a few days ahead of his Time cover. Links to organizations assisting rebuilding efforts, community, and youth, here.

SCOTUS. Great imagery from the steps of the Supreme Court this week are up at photographer Keith Lane's blog. Learn more about how to get involved in the fight for marriage equality at HRC Local, and LOLz (maybe?) at Politico's round-up of the "8 Most Awkward Moments" from Tuesday's arguments.

LE WEEKEND: @ibatapaints starts a new painting today as part of the Copyist Program at the NGA (Gallery 56/West Building/11AM-3PM) – his copyist versions include #paintingblackpeople into classic works, so....YES (h/t @hughesbraden). Tonight's Injustice Among Us opening at Recreative Spaces features a live performance from tap dancer Bakaari Wilder; Art Whino's El Mundo de Los Luchadores is Saturday. Sunday's Hinckley Pottery annual ceramics show in Adams Morgan looks like an excellent place to score Mother's Day gifts, and if you've got any juice left Monday night, check out the screening of short documentary Déjenos Pasar on Euclid Street.

BOOOOKS. Obama visited Anacostia Library this week! How cool is this? See also: Independent Bookstore Day. Visit your neighborhood purveyor, whether that's Upshur St. Books or any of these.

OTHER STUFF: Design*Sponge at the White House; DRAKE + THE STROKES?!; and The Fridge put out an open call for the DC STICKERS EXPO 2: send yours to DC Sticker Expo 2, PO Box 70336, Washington, DC, 20024.

ABOUT ME: I'm stoked to have tickets to tonight's Ex Hex show at Black Cat, but otherwise this weekend is about doubling down on all things A Creative DC. There's a ~nEw WeBsItE~ launch planned for Monday – all fingers crossed we come in on time, and huge, huge thanks to each and every one of you for following the project so far, whether on Instagram or here at Panda Head Blog. See you in a few days!
