Wallace Museum’s Fall Lecture Series explores Virginia “Capitols”
The 2002 Fall Lecture Series at Colonial Williamsburg’s DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum will focus on “Remodeling Virginia’s Capitols Over the Centuries.” The lecture series is being held in conjunction with the exhibition “Jefferson and the Capitol of Virginia,” featuring the sole surviving artifact of Thomas Jefferson’s design of the Capitol of Virginia, an 18th-century model of the Capitol building in Richmond and its replica, on display at the Wallace Museum through Feb. 17, 2003. The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and the Library of Virginia are co-sponsoring the exhibition.
All lectures will be held 4 p.m. in the Hennage Auditorium and are included in museum admission.
