Auction at Design Within Reach
Furniture store auctions off pieces to benefit Kreeger Museum’s upcoming Philip Johnson exhibition. By Mary Clare Glover
Comments () | Published September 24, 2007
Renowned American architect Philip Johnson was strongly influenced by the visual arts, from sculpture to painting. Beginning March 15, the Kreeger Museum hosts the exhibit “Phillip Johnson: Architecture as Art,” which will showcase works of art—including paintings by Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol—that had an impact on Johnson’s work. You can support the upcoming exhibition at a silent auction this week at the Georgetown location of Design Within Reach.

Among the items: this egg-shaped chair by Arne Jacobsen, a butterfly stool designed by Japanese industrial designer Sori Yanagi, and a photograph by architectural photographer Richard Schulman. A closing reception on Saturday, September 29, at 3 PM will reveal the winning bids.

Design Within Reach, 3307 Cady’s Alley, NW; 202-339-0890.
