Come to the Washington National Cathedral for a free screening of Good Work: Masters of the Building Arts, a ﬁlm showcasing American artisans in the building trades, including four with hands-on experience at Washington National Cathedral. The film will be followed by a short discussion with the Academy Award winning ﬁlmmakers, Marjorie Hunt and Paul Wagner, and the Cathedral artisans whose work is featured in the ﬁlm: stone mason Joe Alonso, metalsmith Patrick Cardine and stained glass artisan Andrew Goldkuhle.
The documentary illustrates the diversity of beautiful and functional works of art, from stained glass to masonry to ironwork and hand-carved lettering. Good Work celebrates the importance of American craftsmanship, occupational traditions, the beauty of our built environment and calls for new generations to do “good work.”
A 6:30 pm reception, open to the public, precedes the film. Click here to register.
