It's not uncommon to see our little friends from The Giving Tree Daycare and Preschool in our galleries, where their inquisitive little voices can be heard asking questions about the work hanging there. We're still in awe of the gingerbread version of Fleisher they constructed with their teacher, Cori, for the Center / Architecture + Design's Gingerbread Architecture Challenge. Receiving an honorable mention is a huge achievement. Looks like we might have the next crop of design professionals on our hands!

Join us for Citizen Archivist Week of Service...

Join us for Citizen Archivist Week of Service! In the spirit of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, join us January 15-19, 2018 for a week-long citizen archivist challenge. Our goal is to tag or transcribe 2,018 pages in the National Archives Catalog during Citizen Archivist Week of Service. Can you help us meet this challenge? Get started by visiting the Citizen Archivist Dashboard beginning January 15. During that week, we’ll have a special expanded missions session and lots of featured records waiting to be transcribed. For our new volunteers, you’ll also find instructions on how to create an account and get started. You can help us unlock history by tagging and transcribing primary source documents in the National Archives Catalog. As you add tags or transcriptions to these records, those words are added to our Catalog – improving search results, and making our records more discoverable online. The added benefit is that we’re unlocking the sometimes difficult to read text for all to understand. We like to say that as we tag and transcribe, we are unlocking history. Transcribe and tag some of our holdings today, a handful of which are linked to below: The Indictment of Samuel Maccubbin involved in the Baltimore 'Riot' of 1861: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/278869 Deposition of John Snyder: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/18545806 Information provided by Lester Matz and John C. Childs filed in the U.S. Attorneys' Records on Spiro T. Agnew: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/279167 Complaint Against the Prince Edward County School Board of Virginia: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/279098 Fire Island National Seashore: A Proposal: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/40304849 History of Langley Air Field, Inception to March 1, 1935: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/66956741 John B.

    Help Us Unlock History During Citizen Archivist Service Week!
    In the spirit of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, we're launching a week-long citizen archivist challenge from January 15-19. We invite you and your students to join us! Help us unlock history by tagging and transcribing primary source documents in the National Archives Catalog.

“My story being done, . . . She swore, in faith ‘twas strange, ‘twas passing strange.” – OTHELLO, Act One, Scene 3 Take a deep dive into the world of PASSING STRANGE in Walter Bilderback's (Production Dramaturg and Literary Manager) Open Stages blog post. #WilmaPassingStrange is now playing through February 18.

    OPEN STAGE ONLINE: PASSING STRANGE
    by Walter Bilderback "My story being done, . . . She swore, in faith 'twas strange, 'twas passing strange." - Othello, Act One, Scene 3 Passing Strange is, first and foremost, a coming of age story. Although it shares some moments with Stew's real life, it is not autobiographical.

The humble pencil is a requirement on nearly every Fleisher class and workshop supply list. Have you ever thought about how they are made? This beautiful photo essay looks at how General Pencil Company takes raw wax, paint, cedar planks, and graphite to create art's most ubiquitous tool.

    Inside One of America's Last Pencil Factories
    Over the past few years, the photographer Christopher Payne visited the factory dozens of times, documenting every phase of the manufacturing process. His photographs capture the many different worlds hidden inside the complex's plain brick exterior. The basement, where workers process charcoal, is a universe of absolute gray: gray shirts, gray hands, gray machines swallowing gray ingredients.
