Join David Hawkins, Head of Education, for an architectural tour of The Kreeger Museum. Completed in 1967, and designed by Philip Johnson and Richard Foster, the building serves as a fine example of the eclectic inspiration and unique style which came to define Johnson’s career. The one-hour tour will focus on Johnson’s architectural philosophy, the history of the building, and the visionary fusion of art, architecture, and music.
