Virtual MoMA Tour; Phillip Johnson at the Kreeger

Eames DCM (1946) at MoMA
If your plans to flee Washington this summer are more focused on the beach rather than a drive to New York City, take a quick peek at some images from MoMA to tide you over until your next visit. If you do plan to go, a good way to save some cash is by heading to the museum between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on a Friday. Admission is free thanks to Target.

If you’re looking for something closer to home, the Kreeger Museum’s Phillip Johnson: Architecture as Art ends July 31. The exhibit includes drawings and photographs of Johnson’s Glass House. Johnson designed the museum as a private residence and gallery space for the Kreeger’s in 1963.
