Social Sketching: Columns & Coffee at DAR Memorial Continental Hall

Saturday, March 10th
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

DAR Memorial Continental Hall
17th and D St NW
We will meet at the Starbucks at 20th and E at 10:00am.

Columns & Coffee is a monthly social sketching excursion led by the L’Enfants, the emerging architects branch of the ICAA Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter.

Anyone with an interest in sketching and/or connecting with other artists and architects is encouraged to attend.

This month, we will be sketching at the Daughters of the American Revolution’s Memorial Continental Hall.

Edward Pearce Casey designed the original building, which opened in 1910. However, the DAR quickly outgrew the space, and they hired John Russel Pope to design the Neoclassical Constitution Hall as a second facility in 1928. Constitution Hall’s famous auditorium remains the largest in Washington, DC.

We will be sketching for about 2.5-3 hours, but people are welcome to come and go as they please.

Participants should be prepared to bring their own materials.

Cost: Free. RSVP is required

RSVP: Anthony DiManno
