Join the AIA for a fascinating evening as Elise A. Friedland (George Washington University) presents Classical Washington: Greece & Rome in the Art & Architecture of D.C.

This presentation will be given at 8pm Eastern/7pm Central/6pm Mountain/5pm Pacific.

Washington, D.C., is a city like no other in the United States. A Greek Doric 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 stand amidst circular plazas, celebrating victorious American generals (Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Plaza). This talk explores the role of Greek and Roman art and architecture in the planning, building and decorating of America’s capital city.
