Duke-Ellington-1.jpgTour major renovations and additions at this famed institution for the visual and performing arts. Gabe Oliver and Dan Waldo, project managers with design-builder GCS-SIGAL, and Christoffer Graae, FAIA, Principal-in-Charge with the architects LBA-CGS JV lead a tour of the 265,000-square-foot project.

The Wharf features a four-story atrium with a new 800-seat theater, and new, large studios and rehearsal spaces. Because this is an active construction site, expect some uneven flooring and stair climbing.

$25 Museum Member | $35 Non-member. Registration begins February 21 by calling 202.272.2448 during business hours, and will be assigned based on space availability. On-site registration is not available.
