Built by Women Exhibit Talk & Park Tours
Saturday, April 24, 2021
The Built by Women DC exhibit (BxW DC) will be on display for a special weekend in an outdoor pavilion on the grounds of the Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum. The juried exhibit showcases 30 outstanding sites where women were directly responsible for leading the design or construction of the project in the Washington D.C. metro region (including southern Maryland and north Virginia). The BxW DC exhibit was the outcome of a juried competition organized by the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation in 2016 to recognize women’s contributions to our built environment. On SATURDAY ONLY, from 11:00am-12noon, women design professionals will be on hand to answer questions about the exhibit and some of the projects featured. GUIDED TOURS of the park grounds will be offered at 12noon & 1pm on Saturday as well as 11am & 1pm on Sunday by first-come-first-serve basis.
