Join us for Summer on the Lawn at the National Building Museum. The National Building Museum’s West Lawn will feature an attractive art installation designed with typical pandemic-era social distancing guidance in mind. The installation entitled Equilateral Network: An Artistic Social Distancing Lawn Design will be created by Lisa Marie Thalhammer, best known for her LOVE mural in Blagden Alley.

“Inspired by Pierre Charles L’Enfant’s original city plan for Washington DC, I arranged a series of equilateral triangles with intention to help balance and harmonize the energy of our nation’s capital,” said Thalhammer. “The triangles piece together creating comfortably spaced areas to sit and paths to walk. This balanced, steady and strong geometry is highlighted in a proud pink amongst a healing color spectrum. It is designed to inspire feelings of calm, unity, peace, equity and joy.”

In addition, Summer on the Lawn at the National Building Museum will host the fourth annual DowntownDC Summer Flicks – CAN I KICK IT? movie series on Tuesday evenings from May 25th to July 27th.
