WoTRS January Cultural Outing Rescheduled for April!

April 12, 2013 at 11:30 AM

We will be meeting in the lobby of the National Portrait Gallery to see the following exhibits: "One Life: Amelia Earhart" and "A Will of Their Own: Judith Sargent Murray and Women of Achievement in the Early Republic."  New this time: the docent will include highlights about women from the permanent collection!  Moving on to the Smithsonian American Art Museum, we'll meet our docent for a tour of "Inventing a Better Mousetrap."  Lunch will follow at Legal Seafood.

Details from our original event:

Women- their strength, resilience, and achievement, will be the focus of our tours as we visit two iconic museums in Washington, DC.  We’ll first gather at The National Portrait Gallery, www.npg.si.edu, (at the Information Desk at the Group Entrance on G and 8th Sts.).  There, we’ll begin a docent-led tour of two inspiring exhibits: “A Will of Their Own: Judith Murray and Women of Achievement in the Early Republic” (demonstrating women’s efforts to gain gender equality in early America) and “One Life: Amelia Earhart” (coinciding with the 75th anniversary of her disappearance, and including a variety of artistic media, with audio and film excerpts).  The museum is closest to the Gallery Place- Chinatown Metro exit on the red, yellow, and green lines.

Moving on to The National Museum of American Art, http://americanart.si.edu , we will enjoy another docent-led tour of “Inventing a Better Mousetrap: Patent Models from the Rothschild Collection” (featuring 32 models of nineteenth-century patent inventions from inventors across the U.S.)  Our tour request also includes a focus on how these inventions affected women and domesticity of the time.
