Art and Survival —The District is teeming with fresh artistic talent and the Corcoran Gallery of Art showcases it with “Census 03: New Art from DC.” Organized by the Corcoran College of Art + Design, the exhibit takes new information about artists — in much the same manner as a population survey — and presents its “results” to the community. Among the seven artists “found” and their visions: Iona Rozeal Brown pictures hip-hop’s global effect on young culture, Tim Doud makes intriguing, sometimes creepy pop portraits; and Graham Caldwell’s soft-blown glass shapes jump from hard steel supports. At the Corcoran Gallery, New York Avenue at 17th Street, NW. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily except Tuesday and open until 9 p.m. on Thursday. Closed Tuesday. Through Oct. 6. $5 adults, $4 seniors, $8 families, $3 students ages 13 to 18 and member guests. 202/639-1700

A memorial tribute to the late Gregory Peck continues this weekend at the American Film Institute Silver Theatre with revivals of two characteristic vehicles directed by William Wyler, “Roman Holiday” and “The Big Country,” plus a shocking vehicle in its time period, the suspense thriller “Cape Fear” directed by J. Lee Thompson. The series concludes with showings on Sept. 8 and Sept. 10, of “Twelve O’Clock High,” the 1950 saga of World War II bomber pilots that preserves the strongest of Mr. Peck’s performances during the initial period of his prolonged starring career. Directed by Henry King, the movie is also being revived at the Library of Congress’ Mary Pickford Theater as part of a new retrospective series on aviation themes programmed to coincide with the Wright Brothers’ centennial. The Pickford showing is scheduled for Sept. 9 at 7 p.m.

The AFI Silver is located at 8633 Colesville Road in Silver Spring.

Tickets are priced at $8.50 for the general public and $7.50 for members, students and seniors (65 and over). 301/495-6700. The Pickford Theater is on the third floor of the James Madison Building, 101 Independence Ave. SE. Screenings are free but seating is limited to 64. 202/705-5677.
