Event description

Description

The U.S. Capitol Historical Society is pleased to announce that James Lancel McElhinney will present a lunchtime lecture on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. Rethinking Seth Eastman: A Contemporary Perspective will focus on Eastman’s final works—a series of paintings depicting the Principal Fortifications of the United States, now housed in the United States Capitol.

WEATHER UPDATE: This event will take place as planned, regardless of weather conditions. We are located near two metro stations: Union Station on the red line and Capitol South on the blue, orange, and silver lines.

The presentation is free and open to the public, although pre-registration is requested. The lecture begins at noon on January 17 and will be held in Ketchum Hall of the VFW Building at 200 Maryland Ave. NE, Washington, DC 20002.

McElhinney is an independent scholar, visual artist, author, and oral historian. He earned an MFA in painting from Yale and has received numerous fellowships and grants, including a 2017 Pollock Krasner Grant and a grant from National Endowment for the Arts.
