Walter Washington Convention Center Art Collection Tour - USA

Today I took a tour of the Walter Washington Convention Center Art Collection. It is the largest art collection in DC that is not in a museum. The tour was led by co-curator Vivienne Lassman. The $4 million permanent art installation features paintings, sculptures, photography, graphics, and mixed media works created by local, national, and international artists. This is a major collection of art in Washington, DC. The scale of some of the pieces is breathtaking, set in a massive volume of building space. The whole collection is stunning and a delight to visit. The tour is led monthly by DC Art Curator Vivienne Lassman who discusses the collection in depth with her expert knowledge. Stay tuned for more tour dates and times.
