Join us for the opening of the Stone Center’s exhibition and tribute to the life and work of Phil Freelon, renowned architect, artist, humanist and philanthropist. This exhibition, entitled Meditations on the Idea of Sacred Space: The Life and Enduring Work of Phil Freelon, focuses on his professional life and accomplishments as this nation’s foremost designer of African American arts and cultural spaces. We will feature examples of his award-winning designs along with interviews and intimate portraits of his life from his beginnings as a precocious and talented student in Philadelphia, to his crowning achievement as Chief Architect for the National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

This exhibition is co-curated by former Freelon associate and publicist Lew Myers. The installation opens at 7:00pm, on January 28 and runs through April 24, 2020. A reception will follow the opening. This program is free and open to the public.
