You and three guests will have the unique opportunity to experience a private tour led by Textile Museum Assistant Curator Jackie Streker at the new D.C. history exhibition "Eye of the Bird: Visions and Views of D.C.'s Past" at the George Washington University Museum.
This exhibition examines the evolution of Washington, D.C., through two newly commissioned panoramic landscape paintings by local artist Peter Waddell and related works. One painting shows the grand city that planner Pierre “Peter” L’Enfant envisioned. The other captures the city's development by 1825, the year L’Enfant passed away.
Tour must be scheduled for a mutually agreeable date and time during regular museum hours (see website) between October 17 and December 23, 2018. Maximum of 4 guests. Tour will last 45-60 minutes. Guests are welcome to explore the rest of the museum after the tour.
