Scott Clowney presents Historic Buildings of Washington, D.C.: A Coloring Book of Architecture and accompanying display Drawn from the City
The National Building Museum collaborated with D.C.-based artist Scott Clowney to produce a coloring book of historic buildings of Washington, D.C., now available in the Museum Shop in person and online. Historic Buildings of Washington, D.C.: A Coloring Book of Architecture features sites like Union Station, the White House, Washington National Cathedral, the Library of Congress, and the National Building Museum. It introduces colorists of all ages to the iconic and off-the-beaten-path buildings that shape the character of the city. The book is published by Commonwealth Editions, an imprint of Applewood Books, Inc.
“Washington, D.C. is a magical city steeped in architectural history,” said Clowney. “Working with the National Building Museum has changed my perspective on the building arts and I am excited to share some of those perspectives through this book.”
In addition, the Museum is displaying Clowney’s original drawings made for coloring book. Titled Drawn from the City: Art by Scott Clowney, the display is on view in the Museum’s West Court arcade.
Additional work by Scott Clowney is also featured in Wright on the Walls, the Museum’s interactive coloring exhibition exploring the work of Frank Lloyd Wright.
