Photographer Garry Winogrand was one of the great mid-20th-century American street photographers, chronicling the connections that unite us, and the barriers (of sex, class, age and race, for instance) that sometimes keep us apart. As well-known as his work is, however, there are still pictures of his that haven’t been previously shown. At the time of his 1984 death, he left thousands of undeveloped negatives. Some of them will appear in this retrospective, among the 190 or so works selected to showcase Winogrand’s keen, sometimes satirical, yet always compassionate eye.

It’s a new way to save your ideas about places to go and shows to see in Washington, and it can help you find things to do with your friends.

Woody Allen takes a rare turn in front of the camera in writer-director-actor John Turturro’s latest film, "Fading Gigolo," which serves as the centerpiece of the 24th annual Washington Jewish Film Festival. Sharon Stone, Sofia Vergara and Vanessa Paradis co-star in the movie, which will be shown March 8 at the AFI Silver Theatre. In all, 64 films from 18 countries will be shown during the festival, including the opening night film, "The Wonders," Thursday at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. at the Washington D.C. Jewish Community Center.

Yes, the Intersections Festival has dance, music and theater, like any other respectable arts festival in D.C. would. But it has one thing the others don’t: A dog circus. "Mutts Gone Nuts" is one of the 60 acts, many of which are free, that will be featured in the Atlas Theatre’s 16-day festival. If dog tricks aren’t your thing, catch performances from artists like the Jane Franklin Dance Company, UrbanArias, Christylez Bacon, and Mary Alouette.
