Talk with the Artist: Lisa Marie Thalhammer and Equilateral Network

Wednesday, July 28, 2021
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Meet the artists whose interactive projects at the National Building Museum are helping us turn the annual Summer Block Party Inside Out.

Equilateral NetworkHear from D.C. muralist Lisa Marie Thalhammer, who is known for her striking and powerful paintings, collages and public artworks that use portraiture, symbolism, color and shape to explore interconnectivity, raise consciousness and communicate uplifting messages. Her design, Equilateral Network  transforms the Museum’s west lawn through a series of pink triangles and walking paths, comfortably spaced 6 feet apart, that take inspiration from Pierre Charles L’Enfant’s use of sacred geometry in his city plan for Washington, D.C. Thalhammer is joined by Galin Brooks, AICP, Director of Planning and Placemaking, DowntownDC Business Improvement District, to discuss this installation, her other work, and the important role of art in the public realm.

UPDATE: This program may now be viewed on the Museum website.

In lieu of a program fee, we ask for your support of the Museum. Your donation to the Annual Fund will enable us to adapt to these changing times and grow into our future. Thank you!
