Displays range from an explanation of the different types of clowns and their costumes, to the mini car driven by Chester “Bobo” Barnett, to a travel trunk full of clown shoes, plus countless other costumes, portraits, posters, paintings, and clowning paraphernalia.
Stopping by the Gallery this week? Join us tomorrow, July 24, at 1:00 pm for "Celebrating the East Building: 20th-Century Art Lecture Series."
The East Building opened in 1978 and inaugurated contemporary and modern art collecting at the National Gallery of Art. This summer, explore the highlights of 20th-century art through a series of lectures that illuminate the major movements associated with European and American modern art. Attend all 14 lectures for a course in modern art or join in for as many individual talks as you would like. Each lecture is 60 minutes. Tomorrow's topic is "Early Picasso and Cubism."
Hope to see you! go.usa.gov/xU9Fy
