Free Admission to Gadsby’s
Tavern on Saturday, June 24
For Immediate Release: June 21, 2017
Take advantage of free admission to Gadsby’s Tavern Museum to
see Centennial of the Everyday, a public-art exhibition featuring layers upon
layers of artistic interventions tucked in among Gadsby’s exhibits. Gadsby’s
Tavern Museum, open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is located at 143 N. Royal St. in
Historic Old Town Alexandria.
Centennial of the Everyday is part of the Office of the
& Place series, which explores the intersection of contemporary art
with Alexandria’s rich and multifaceted history. The goal of this compelling
project is to foster exploration and dialogue about our region’s history and
its continued reverberations within our community today. Using video,
furniture, stoneware, embroidery, textiles, and other domestic items, the
archival becomes interactive. The works on view reflects the artists’
extensive, in-depth research on the women, enslaved peoples, and anonymous
citizens whose stories have been overshadowed. Follow #TimeandPlaceALX to join
the conversation online.
