Films at the Stone, the annual film series at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial will screen “Black Panther” on August 19.

Before the showing, the KanKouran West African Dance Company will present a pre-show dance and drum performance.

National Building Museum Exhibitions

In addition to the popular and ongoing exhibitions House & Home and Animals, Collected, the Museum will offer three new opportunities for visitors to discover timely, important, and beautiful aspects of the built environment.

  • Justice is Beauty: The Work of MASS Design Group showcases a nonprofit architecture firm whose work focuses on public health, personal well-being, and human dignity. Over its first decade, MASS Design Group has paved the way in designing health structures that manage disease outbreaks such as tuberculosis, cholera, and Ebola. Other innovative projects include schools, prison design alternatives, food-conservation labs, urban space designs, and memorials to commemorate civil injustices. On display through September 2022.
  • Shown in conjunction with Justice is Beauty, the Gun Violence Memorial Project is an architectural space of memory and healing: four glass-brick houses that are filled with remembrance objects collected from immediate families whose loved ones were killed by gun violence. This tribute to the thousands of lives taken by gun violence in the U.S. each year was designed by MASS Design Group and conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas, and developed in partnership with the gun violence prevention organizations Purpose Over Pain and Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund. On display through September 2022. This exhibition is free for all visitors—no ticket purchase required.

The Museum’s exhibitions and the Museum Shop will be open from 11 am to 4 pm, Fridays through Sundays. Masks are required for all visitors at all times, and the Museum is following all D.C. government COVID guidelines regarding visitor capacity. Over the past year, the Museum has moved its public programs to an online format, and this will continue over the coming months, until the city’s rules on the size of indoor gatherings allow for in-person events.
