Historical Society of Washington Exhibits Kiplinger Collection until March 2013

Here’s a newly opened exhibit I want people to be aware of — Window to Washington, the Kiplinger Collection at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. According to the HSW Web site, admission is free. There is also an online exhibition component that is worth the visit if you want to learn more about the collection and see a few of the images.

The HSW describes the exhibit, which runs until May 2013, as follows:

The Society is delighted to present a new exhibit, Window to Washington, featuring the Kiplinger Collection, the most important donation in the organization’s 188-year history. The exhibit explores the development of our nation’s capital, from a sleepy southern town into a modern metropolis, as told through the works of artists who witnessed the city’s changes. The exhibit is currently planned for a six-month run at the Society and will include some of the collection’s rarest and most iconic artworks.

Below is a video which provides additional context.

From the neighborhood, it’s an easy trip on the Green line to the Mt. Vernon Square Metro station and then a few blocks to the south.
