Forgotten Ansel Adams Murals Brought Back to Light
The many federal buildings of Washington, D.C., house more than just bureaucracy and thousands of federal workers. They are also home to some hidden gems of art.
A new exhibit on the walls of the Interior Department's headquarters displays a series of photographs taken by Ansel Adams — murals commissioned in the last century, but never before displayed.
Read and hear the NPR story by Bryan Naylor and see photographs from the exhibit.
The Adams murals and other art in the Interior Department can be viewed by appointment.
