The widely popular Jazz in the Garden concert series at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden free concerts feature locally and nationally acclaimed musicians performing a wide variety of musical genres—Brazilian bluegrass, Dixieland, Czech jazz, Steel Pan Caribbean jazz, blues fusion, Brazilian jazz, soul, and more. Concerts take place every Friday evening from 5:00 to 8:30 in the Sculpture Garden, located between 7th and 9th Streets NW, along Constitution Avenue during the summer months.

Musicians perform in front of the Pavilion Café, next to the grand fountain and reflecting pool, with eight jets that shoot water 20 feet into the air. Visitors enjoy free, live concerts amid the Gallery's collection of large-scale sculpture by renowned modern and contemporary artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Marc Chagall, Hector Guimard, Robert Indiana, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Miró, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, Roxy Paine, Robert Indiana, Tony Smith, and others.
