Memorial Day Saturday, 29 May, was the opening of the Free Summer Saturdays 2010 Series at the Corcoran which will run through Labor Day Saturday, 4 September.
Which explains why when en route to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial that I'd capture Corcoran alumnus, Randolph Williams, chalk drawing at the corner of 17th Street and New York Avenue as he recreated the George Washington painting by Gilbert Stuart from the Corcoran collection.
Visit the Corcoran on Saturdays this summer for Gallery tours, workshops, demonstrations, and performances! Enjoy summer exhibitions and programming free of admission Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.
And in connection with my 2010 Memorial Day Weekend / WDC docu-project click the image to view my Artist Randolph Williams photo album.
