Preservation Pop-up!

Design has the power to change more than just a physical space, but also how we feel and think. What happens when we take historical architecture and modernize it with new technologies and design elements?

On Thursday, April 27th from 5:00 - 7:30 pm, connect with students and professors from George Washington University Corcoran School of the Arts & Design together with the Heurich House Museum’s education and preservation teams with a pop-up program meant to challenge how we interpret and interact with design.

Meet the Museum’s Program Director, Stephany Fry, in the garden to interact with historic fragments from the Heurich House, and engage in conversation with Assistant Professor & Director of Graduate Studies, Exhibition Design, Andrea Dietz. Afterwards, explore both the kitchen and conservatory, which served as inspiration for the students. The models will be on display for viewing and the student’s will share their inspiration, research, and questions that led to their design. Jenna, the museum's Education Director will provide historical context of the home while Dan will share his experience restoring the Conservatory in 2011.

The pop-up is an open house, guests are invited to come at any point in the evening.

Before or after visiting the pop-up, guests are can enjoy a local craft beverage in the museum’s biergarten, 1921 or book a tour of the full house.

This event is free. RSVP is requested, but not required
