Meet at 30th & R Street Entrance
Superintendent Dave Jackson has agreed to host our group in the historic Oak Hill Cemetery Chapel. Oak Hill Cemetery is a historic 22- acre cemetery located in Georgetown. It was founded in 1848 and completed in 1853 and is a prime example of a garden cemetery. Many famous people are buried at Oak Hill and the cemetery has a large number of Victorian-style memorials and monuments. Parking is limited at the cemetery so it is best to walk or Uber. The Chapel is not air-conditioned. No food is allowed. There is some walking required but it will be limited. The cemetery's internment of Willie Lincoln, deceased son of President Lincoln, was the inspiration for the novel, Lincoln the Bardo by George Saunders.

No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man
Burning Man is a unique cultural festival that takes place in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert every year, attracting more than 75,000 people in honor of creativity. Massive, large-scale installations are built, celebrated and sometimes burned ritually in the temporary, man-made city in the desert. With the exhibit at the Renwick, you’ll be able to experience the spirit of a festival that takes places thousands of miles away without leaving the nation’s capital.
No Spectators is so epic, museum walls cannot contain it. The Renwick Gallery teamed up with Golden Triangle Business Improvement District to expand outside of the museum's walls and into the surrounding Golden Triangle neighborhood. Look for jaw-dropping sculptures and installations scattered throughout the 43-square-block radius, including an ode to Maya Angelou , a math-inspired deltahedron entitled Golden Spike and a fitting pair of ten-foot-tall stainless-steel letters, X-O, standing side-by-side.
