Special Display: Transform DC
Community Day Celebration on Thursday, May 18
In January 2023, the National Building Museum screened the Alice Street documentary as part of its Architecture and Design Film Festival. Taking inspiration from that film, the Transform DC project engaged D.C. public high school students to work collaboratively in creating large scale mural panels that will be brought together as a part of a city-wide culminating public installation. The murals will be unveiled on the West Lawn of the Museum at a Community Day Celebration on Thursday, May 18, the murals are a part of the project-based learning Cornerstone curriculum for grades 9 through 12 and help students examine the past, present, and future of their school buildings and their role in the surrounding communities.
