AIA lecture series: Elise Friedland. "Classical Washington. Greece & Rome in the Art & Architecture of D.C."

In Washington, D.C., a "Hellenic Doric-style" temple (the Lincoln Memorial) sits at one end of the city’s central "forum" (The Mall), housing a colossal cult statue (Abraham Lincoln). A Roman "triumphal arch" monumentalizes the front of the main train depot (Union Station). Roman equestrian statues make assertions amidst circular plazas. This talk explores these juxtapositions in America’s capital city.

Please join us for a livestream presentation, and stay for an informal discussion afterward.
