Happy birthday Edvard Munch! Norway’s most famous painter, who gave us “Geschrei” aka “The Scream,” would have been 150 this year. The National Gallery of Art is throwing him a party of sorts, with an exhibition of more than 20 of his most famous works, including the aforementioned masterpiece. Through July 28. Also on display at the NGA is Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, 1909-1929: When Art Danced with Music, 130 original costumes, set designs, paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings, photographs and posters from the most innovative dance company of the 20th century. Through Sept. 2. http://www.nga.gov.

Outside the Beltway, The Homestead in Hot Springs, Va., has partnered with Canyon Ranch to develop a new spa at the historic property. The Canyon Ranch SpaClub will be the first in the mid-Atlantic for the luxe pampering emporium. In addition to 28 treatment rooms, mineral baths and a “reflexology walk,” the facility includes a family spa where kids from 5 to 13 can de-stress with a little yoga, get a “stars facial” or a “pink bubbles pedicure.” http://www.thehomestead.com.
