Man spinning a plate at courtyard opening

Here's the spin on Sunday's festivities.

Over ten thousand people (including lots of children) attended our Friends and Family festival marking the opening of the Kogod Courtyard. Eye Level blogged a record eight stories that day (whew!), documented with many photos by us and by others (see our Flickr photostream). Here are links to some of the media coverage of the opening:

Courtyard Opening – "Raising the Roof" (Kid’s Washington Post)

Courtyard Opening – "Foster’s Wavy Roof Keeps Smithsonian Museums' Courtyard Cool" (Bloomberg)
