National Gallery of Art Renovation, Interview with Susan Wertheim & Harry Cooper
Art of Living series, Smithsonian Associates
In September, 2016, the National Gallery of Art’s East Building, which houses the modern art collection, reopened after three years of renovation. Along with the renovation of existing galleries and construction of new galleries and a roof terrace, there was a completely new configuration of the permanent collection.
The Washington Post says: “Although individually subtle, the changes to the East Building and the permanent collection together create a powerful new experience for visitors.”
On May 22, in Washington DC, at the Ripley Center Susan Wertheim, Harry Cooper, and Mark Leithauser will present on this fascinating building, it’s housed modern art, the blue rooster and much more.
