The Renwick reopens!

After a two-year restoration, the Renwick is reopening with a major show of nine site-specific installations, with each installation filling an entire room. Here is a preview of some of them:

These photos were taken at last night’s opening party. There is another opening party tonight – tickets are $75. While expensive, I think it was worth it to see the incredible art installations, plus great food and drink and special entertainment.
The museum opens on Friday, with a festival on Saturday. It is part of the Smithsonian complex, so visiting it is free.

I'm a D.C. native, but have only been taking photos for about five years. Even in that time, I've seen so many changes in D.C., and am increasingly interested in photographing the things in D.C. that are temporary or may be demolished, and the people who interact with the city. When I'm not out photographing, I'm a web developer.
