The Faulkner Murals: Revealing their Stories
  • Date: Tuesday, July 02, 2019
  • Time: 4:00 pm
  • Location: William G. McGowan Theater, Washington, DC

The Faulkner murals have decorated the walls of the National Archives Rotunda since the opening of the building in 1936.  However, very little information on their composition has been available to the general public since then. Dr. Lester Gorelic shares the compelling stories woven into the Faulkner murals and explains the magnificent composition used to tell them.

All public programs at the National Archives are free. Reservations are recommended; seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The doors to the building will open 45 minutes prior to the start of the program. Use the Special Events entrance on the corner of Constitution Avenue and 7th Street, NW.

Live captioning will be available online and in the William G. McGowan Theater. If you require an alternative or additional accommodation for an event (such as a downloadable transcript or a sign language interpreter), please send an email to public.program@nara.gov or call 202.357.5000 in advance.
