The U.S. Capitol Historical Society will host its annual lunchtime lecture series on Wednesdays in August on Capitol Hill. This year’s iteration of the series will focus on Congress and the arts and how Congress acts as a patron of the arts.
All events take place from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM on Wednesdays on or near Capitol Hill. They are free and open to the public, though pre-registration is requested.

Cohen will focus her presentation on the two sculptures that were removed from the Capitol’s East front cheek blocks and are currently in storage. She will discuss what options are available to policy makers in preserving pieces of public art.
Location: Ketchum Hall; 200 Maryland Ave. NE; Washington, DC 20002.
