Sacred Art and Architecture in Historic Downtown's Places of Worship
 

Meet at the Goethe-Institut

Washington's Penn Quarter was the home for many immigrant groups: people of different ethnicities, races and faiths. Fortunately, today there are many houses of worship that embody the history of and some that still perpetuate those traditions. As part of Arts on Foot (www.artsonfoot.org), Alice Stewart, historian and tour guide, leads this tour, which will present the history and interpret the art and architecture of several remaining places of worship in Penn Quarter. The tour will walk past most of the following buildings: the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, the Chinese Community Church, St. Mary's Catholic Church, the original Adas Israel, Holy Rosary Catholic Church, and the First Trinity Lutheran Church. No charge. www.goethe.de/ins/us/was/ver/en6321336v.htm
