Lincoln Memorial Illustrated Family Program

January 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Drop by the Concord Museum’s Lyceum to learn about monuments and leaders through sculpture and drawing.

Stop in to see the Museum’s current exhibition, The Lincoln Memorial Illustrated. One of the most revered and visited sites in Washington, D.C. and in the nation, the Lincoln Memorial is now a century old. Dedicated on May 30, 1922, it was designed by architect Henry Bacon and Concord sculptor Daniel Chester French, and it has served as a gathering place for some of the most significant and symbolic events of the past one hundred years. It has come to represent the nation’s hopes and challenges, providing an iconic backdrop for civic expression relating to democracy and human rights. To celebrate its centennial, this exhibition explores the planning and construction of the Lincoln Memorial through illustrations, sculpture, archival materials, and ephemera, and it traces its role as a symbolic site in illustrations, political cartoons, and popular culture.

Free with Museum admission. Members visit free.
