Wikipedia Description: National Museum of African American History and Culture
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article or section contains information about a planned museum. It is likely to contain information of a speculative nature and the content may change as the construction and/or completion of the museum approaches.
The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is a Smithsonian Institution museum established in 2003. It will be built on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.. The Smithsonian's Board of Regents selected a site in 2006 located at the southwest corner of Constitution Avenue and 14th Street, NW, adjacent to the National Museum of American History. It is across 15th Street from the Washington Monument.
The museum was established on December 19, 2003, through federal legislation. Dr. Lonnie G. Bunch was selected as the museum's first director in July 2005.
In 2007 the National Museum of African American History and Culture became the first major museum to open on the Web before completing a physical structure. The website includes the museum's first exhibit, mounted in New York. It is also designed to encourage collaboration between scholars and the public. The museum is slated to be finished by 2015.
The main feature of the web-based initiative is the Memory Book application, which allows individuals to contribute to the website via pictures, a story, or audio application, to spotlight unique experiences in African-American culture. Physical exhibits will also be mounted in other institutions of the Smithsonian as well as in museums outside of Washington pending completion of the museum's new building.
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
2019 photos: Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Trips this year:
(May/June) a two-day jaunt to New York City for my 62nd birthday,
(July) two-weeks out west for San Diego Comic-Con and sites in Utah,
(August) a four-day jaunt to Massachusetts to experience rain in another state,
(August) a three-day trip to Asheville, NC to visit Dad and his wife Dixie,
(August) another two-day jaunt to New York City (United Nations, Flushing),
(October) a three-day jaunt to New York City (New York Comic-Con).
That's it so far!
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
