10:30 AM - Let's start at the Lincoln Memorial at the base of the stairs leading up to the Lincoln statue, on the right side under the torch holder. If the Memorial is open, we can go up and have a look at Abe (Daniel Chester French sculpture) and also the 2 murals by Jules Guerin, which are above the Gettysburg Address and Lincoln's 2nd Inauguration speech.
11AM-ish: We'll stroll over to see Albert Einstein, passing the Vietnam Memorial along the way. The Einstein sculpture, in front of the National Academy of Sciences, is the work of Robert Berks. We'll walk along the (marble?) sidewalk in front of the Academy and admire Lee Lawrie's frieze and relief sculptures.
Next, we'll go to the Dept of Interior building. Like all federal buildings, you have to go through the metal detector, and you also need to show a photo ID. We'll look at a few of the sculptures and murals on the 1st floor near the Indian Craft Shop and downstairs in the cafeteria and courtyard. We'll end the walk at the craft shop, where you can browse and enjoy the sculptures and other art.
As part of its 75th Anniversary celebration, the Department of Interior is open to the public on Saturday, October 19, 2013. Specifically, the Indian Craft Shop will have several Native American artists there to show their work.
