National Building Museum’s Around the World in 80 Paper Models Member Tour

« All Events

Members of the National Building Museum are invited to join curator Sarah Leavitt and collector David Kemnitzer as they discuss the Kemnitzer Collection of architectural paper models, highlights of which are featured in the exhibition Cool & Collected. The exhibition, opening on April 16, displays 80 models, many constructed in 3-D, showcasing buildings that represent cultures and civilizations across the globe.

Drawing from a magnificent 4,500-piece collection recently donated to the Museum, the architectural paper models include examples of hand-drawn castles, intricate cathedrals with water-colored gardens, and micro-models smaller than a postcard.

Members may contact Danika Jensen at 202.272.2448, ext. 3456 or djensen@nbm.org to request a reservation for this tour.

This event does not require an RSVP. Registered users can request event reminders
