The exhibit Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Glen Echo Park as a part of the National Park System in the Park View Gallery will tell the story of the effort to protect land near the Potomac river from development in the 1960’s. Learn how the park was acquired by the federal government and how it found its direction as an art park. The exhibit will include never before exhibited photographs of the early years of the art program and of the carousel before and after its restoration.
