Discover American Modernism at the National Gallery of Art East Building and enjoy Post Modern Dining at our After Party in Penn Quarter! We will meet near the information desk in the lobby of the modern East Building. (There is one entrance, on 4th Street.) We will tour "American Modernism: The Shein Collection." I will have some prepared commentary on the exhibition. Afterward, there will be free time to independently explore other displays in the East Building, including "In the Tower: Mark Rothko," for those among us who enjoy black on black paintings! We will reconvene in the lobby at about 5 PM and walk together (10-15 minutes) to Poste Moderne Brasserie, located at 555 8th Street, NW (between E and F Streets), where we will eat, drink, and socialize.
