Social Sketching: Columns & Coffee at Union Station

Saturday, February 9th
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Union Station
50 Massachusetts Avenue, NE
Washington DC, 20002

Columns & Coffee is a monthly social sketching excursion led by the L’Enfants, the emerging architects branch of the ICAA-WMA. Anyone with an interest in sketching and/or connecting with other artists and architects are encouraged to attend. This month, we will be sketching at historic Union Station. A national landmark, the station is a Beaux-Arts masterpiece designed by Daniel Burnham. Known for its triumphal arch entry, massive vaults, and exquisite sculptures, the building has welcomed visitors and commuters to our nation’s capitol for over a century.

Participants should be prepared to bring their own materials. We will meet at the Blue Bottle Coffee in the station’s main hall 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
