James Delaney Lithographs

77

Historic Congressional Cemetery (HCC) has a new limited number series of lithographs produced by well-known artist James Delaney of South Africa. He visited the site and was inspired by the history, dogs and the sense of community. He has produced the set of six limited edition prints (20 each) as a fundraiser. Friends of HCC can purchase each print at a discounted price of $750 until May 1, when they will then retail for the artist’s suggested price of $900. They measure 15 x 22 inches. Further discounts are available for a set of two, four or six prints. DC locals can also obtain discount framing at a Capitol Hill framing business. Contact staff@congressionalcemetery.org, call 202-543-0539 or visit the gatehouse to view the prints.
