Tour of the National Gallery Sculpture Garden (weather permitting)

The weather is supposed to be good Saturday (75-80 and Sunny), so let’s go on a docent led one hour tour of the National Gallery Sculpture Garden (next to the National Gallery of Art West Building). Due to size constraints we have to keep our group small. After our tour, for those who are interested, we can eat and have good conversation at the Sculpture Garden Pavilion Café.


The National Gallery's Sculpture Garden was a gift from The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation and opened to the public in 1999. The landscaping of the 6.1-acre space provides a distinctive setting for major acquisitions of post–World War II sculpture by internationally renowned artists. With the Pavilion Café and reflecting pool and fountain—which become an ice-skating rink in the winter—the garden provides a unique venue for experiencing art. Works by Louise Bourgeois, Roy Lichtenstein, Sol LeWitt, and David Smith, among others, will be seen on the tour.


Closest Metro is Smithsonian Blue and Orange Line).

    @Johanna Yes, according to Google maps you are right. Apparently there are five metro stations (Metro Center, L'Enfant Plaza, Smithsonian and Archives) within 0.5 miles of the Sculpture Garden.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
