Join us for an unconventional tour of one of our favorite museums in Washington DC. Everyone knows American television shows, movies, music, and fashion but lets celebrate one of the oldest, yet underappreciated, forms of American culture: art.
Visit the National Portrait Gallery and Smithsonian American Art Museum to learn about important American artists and some of the unsung heroes in our countrys story. Were going to talk about a local janitors 14-year masterpiece, which was found by chance in his garage, discuss the American dream, check out the original Singer sewing machine, and learn about the power players throughout US history.
Well use the prism of American art to view the unique story of this country and talk about its origins, its awkward adolescent period, and the past century where it has truly come into its own.
Before you go, dont forget to ask your guide for more hints and tips on what else there is to see, do and eat during your stay in wonderful Washington DC.
