Our next Smithsonian Museum......

... will be the National Museum of African American of History and Culture which currently has a great website... but no building yet. We'll be raising around, well, $500 million dollars. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2012 and will open in 2015, but I've been through this with the National Museum of the American Indian. Let's just say, it will hopefully open in 2015.

But there was a decision this week in the design of the museum, which is just one part of getting this museum created. It was decided the stately, bronze structure submitted by architects Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup won the hearts of the official jury. AND I can give you a little sneak peak... 'cuz I know people.
