Temple of Invention: The History of a National Landmark
Temple of Invention: The History of a National Landmark, July 1, 2006 – July 1, 2007 at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC. "...This exhibition honors the museum’s historic home on the 170th anniversary of its cornerstone being laid by President Andrew Jackson and the completion of its glorious renovation. Begun in 1836 and completed in 1868, it was the third public building constructed by the new nation in its capital city. This landmark was praised by Walt Whitman as the 'noblest of Washington buildings' and is considered to be one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture in the United States."
