How do I get art back into my life?

So I'm an art historian/photographer turned law student and I really feel a void missing now that art isn't a part of my daily life. My skills as a photographer have also gone to hell. Right now I find the only real way I have any sort of style/design/art in my life is through clothes, which may sound odd, but I obsessively read the sartorlist and am a far more stylish dresser than my budget really allows. I don't have a lot of time and Washington, DC is hardly a great place for taking pictures. I know there are loads of museums, but to be honest I've been too them and they are not exactly the most dynamic places and obviously have a very heavy bent towards American art. My background is in modern European art and Renaissance art, with a lot of modern design and architecture thrown in. I realize the obvious answer would be to go to more shows, but really I want to find a way to incorporate it into my daily life. I used to take pictures nearly every day or at least a couple days a week, and now I don't have the time or opportunity to do that. So how do people have super corporate jobs still find an artistic outlet at the end of the day?
