Now that I live and work in Washington, DC I try to go out and explore the city before it’s too late. Museums have been on my list of sites I want to see during the summer, they are free, full of art and history. Plus, it is a great thing to do during the day with friends, family and a date.
Renwick is part of the National Museum of American Art in Washington, DC. They had an exhibit called Wonder that was available for viewing from November 13, 2015 – July 10, 2016. As always I found this out last minute so I had to go see if before it closed.
As soon as we walked in there was a bright red sofa in the hall, so of course I knew it would be the prefect Instagram picture ha!
There were nine artists who participated in this exhibit —Jennifer Angus, Chakaia Booker, Gabriel Dawe, Tara Donovan, Patrick Dougherty, Janet Echelman, John Grade, Maya Lin, and Leo Villareal. They each took over different galleries in the building, to create these amazing pieces (source).
-Location: 1661 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20006
-Transportation: It’s actually very close to the metro station. And you can take the bus or an uber, but I wouldn’t advise driving since parking is hard to find.
-Go early! We ended up going around noon, so there were crowds of people pushing through us to look at the pieces. Get in early to get that good shot!
