From National Museum of African American History and Culture:

“On the evenings of November 16-18, to kick off the countdown to its grand opening next fall, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture will come alive for three nights as the façade of the building will be illuminated with moving images in a spectacular display.

The event commemorates three important milestones in African American history:

150th anniversary of the ratification of the 13th Amendment
150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War
50th anniversary of the passage of the Voting Rights Act

Featuring state-of-the-art digital projection imagery, the south (facing Madison Drive) and west exterior (facing 15th Street and the Washington Monument) facades will be transformed into a five-story-tall, one-block-long 3-D canvas. The video display will be seven minutes long and run continuously all three nights from 5:30 p.m. – 9 p.m.

The event is best viewed from the mound area of the Washington Monument and the knoll area adjacent to Madison Drive, at 14th Street, NW.”
