During our recent trip to Washington, D.C., we visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture - the newest addition to the Smithsonian Institution museums on the National Mall. Besides the inspiring collection within, the building itself is fascinating. The three tiered upper floors are wrapped with copper-colored metal latticework meant to represent the ironwork crafted by enslaved African Americans in the southern United States. While striking from the outside, you can better appreciate the intricate pattern by looking out through the lattice from the inside (as seen in this photo). It is all in the details!#nationalmuseumofafricanamericanhistoryandculture #africanamerican #africanamericanhistory #smithsonian #washingtondc #nationalmall #architecture #museum #metalwork #latticework #pattern #art #symbolism #igtravel #instatravel #travelgram #beautifuldestinations #seetheusa #usa #unitedstates #details #itisallinthedetails
