Matters of the “HeArt” - Tour the Wilson Building

At 12 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25, 2009

The public is invited to the Wilson Building for a guided tour through the City Hall public art collection that highlights women artists in the permanent display on floors 1-5 of the Wilson building. The tour will be led by DCCAH Art Bank Coordinator, Beth Baldwin. The tour will take about 70 minutes. The City Hall Collection, “HeArt of the City”, has been assembled over the past two years under the sponsorship of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. It is the richest and largest permanent exhibition of the work of local artists in the city, featuring a broad range of work, including internationally known artists such as Alma Thomas, Renee Stout, Maggie Michael and most local of the artists of significance. The collection truly serves as a window into the scope of creative talent and energy that DC offers today, all styles and media. Tours are offered quarterly and by request.

The tour is free, however, space is limited.
Please RSVP to with the number in your party. Meet at the receptionist’s desk on the first floor near the Pennsylvania Avenue entrance - the building is located at 1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW. ID is required to enter the building.
