Smithsonian American Art Museum/National Portrait Gallery Friday Night Tour

National Portrait Gallery

10,00 $

The combined Smithsonian American Art Museum / National Portrait Gallery is one of the most-visited museums in the United States: 2.3 million visitors last year! These two separate but related museums are both housed together inside of the magnificent “Old Patent Office” building. Considered one of the most beautiful buildings in Washington, DC, its architectural details and history alone makes it a worthwhile visit. Our private, two-hour guided tour will focus on some of the museum’s many highlights from their permanent collection, with a variety of items from both the American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery. Your host for this program is Robert Kelleman, the founder of the non-profit community organization Washington, DC History & Culture, who earned a Bachelor's Degree in Art History (University of Michigan), was formerly employed by the Detroit Institute of Arts and has led many tours of the Smithsonian American Art Museum / National Portrait Gallery. Museum Web Links: http://npg.si.edu/ https://americanart.si.edu/ _________________________ Registration: As this is a very limited space event there is an $10.00 per person registration in-advance fee (donation) with proceeds supporting our Washington, DC History & Culture non-profit community programs. Full refund if the event is cancelled, or if you change your online RSVP from “yes” to “no” at least 48 hours beforehand. Weather: This event is indoors and will take place rain or shine. Meeting Point: 5:00 pm sharp outside of the museum café which is in the Kogod Courtyard, a large interior space in the center of the museum’s ground floor.

National Building Museum: Private Architecture & History Tour

National Building Museum

13,95 $

The National Building Museum is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful buildings in Washington, DC. It is a museum of "architecture, design, engineering, construction, and urban planning". It was created by an act of Congress in 1980, and is a private non-profit institution. The museum hosts various temporary exhibits in galleries around the spacious Great Hall. The building, completed in 1887, served as the Pension Building, housing the United States Pension Bureau, and hosted several presidential inaugural balls. It is an important early large-scale example of Renaissance Revival architecture, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1985. Join us for a private, 60-90-minute guided tour of this architectural and historic landmark by a member of the museum staff. After our tour there will be an opportunity to visit several of the museum’s other exhibits on your/our own until the museum closes at 5:00 pm.

Taking over the National Gallery of Art

National Gallery of Art - East Building

The primary purpose of this art show is to make art history. With this show I will be the first amateur artist to take over a major art museum to put on an unauthorized art show. The use of new technology allows this. By using AR (Augmented Reality) to replace existing art with my art, I, as an amateur artist, get to use my favorite building/favorite art museum to put on a one-man art show. Having created geometric art for over 10 years, I have thousands of images that were created with two goals in mind: make images that I find aesthetically pleasing and images that are somehow interesting. I find creating images to addictive. Once you discover some good images, you can't help wonder if there's even more exciting ones waiting to be discovered. I take images with random elements of lines, shapes and colors and use the image as input to Kaleidoscope software to create an image that has a formal order. The elements of the image combine through symmetry, proportion, harmony, and order to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Normally I'm not a fan of symmetry because I find it a little boring, but the attraction here is creating something fresh and different. Do you have to be a fan of geometric images to enjoy this art show? I am hoping that the variety of images will make it a show that everyone will enjoy. The main floor of the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art contains 102 works of art (images) that I have replaced with images of my artworks. With AR software on a phone or tablet, I replace only the image so I am able to use their frames to frame my artwork. One of the unique aspects of an art show based on AR is that my artworks only appear one at a time. As you go through the show, each artwork is its own surprise. Since I have to supply the hardware to view the show the number of attendees has to be limited. If you sign up, please make sure that you do attend. If your plans change, please remove your name from the "going list" a day before the event. If you fail to show up, you will forfeit your ability to sign up for any future shows. I plan to limit my guided tour to under 50 minutes.
