Social Sketching: Columns & Coffee at the Red Cross Headquarters

Saturday, July 14, 2018
10:00 a.m - 1:00 p.m.

American Red Cross Headquarters
2025 E Street, NW
Washington, DC 20001

Columns & Coffee is a monthly social sketching excursion led by the L’Enfants, the emerging architects branch of the Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. Anyone with an interest in sketching and/or connecting with other artists and architects are encouraged to attend.

This month, we will be sketching outside of the Red Cross Headquarters. Designed by the firm Trowbridge & Livingston in 1915, it has served as both the Red Cross Headquarters and as a memorial to the women who served during the Civil War. The site itself is made up of three monumental buildings covering an entire block and is nestled between the equally stunning DAR Headquarters and the Corcoran.

Participants should be prepared to bring their own materials. We will meet at the Starbucks at 20th and E at 10:00am. We will be sketching for about 2.5-3 hours, but people are welcome to come and go as they please.

Cost: Free. RSVP is required

RSVP to Anthony DiManno
