Smithsonian Institution’s 19 museums and galleries will reopen today. The National Gallery of Art and its Sculpture Garden updated its website only moments ago; its public reopening has been moved up from Saturday to today.
The National Zoo will not open until tomorrow, although its beloved Pandacam is expected to go live this afternoon. The online arts journal Art F City, which has been streaming its own version of the Pandacam since the government shutdown, made a recent appeal for congressional action, adding to the plea: “And we’re getting sick of dressing like pandas every day.”
