"A Place to Be" is a superb "biography of a building," tracing the contemporary design and construction of the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. A monumental commission that took ten years to complete, the film gives an intimate view behind the secrets of the museum's remarkable design and the art created for its public spaces. A landmark of art and architecture but captures the pride of the skilled laborers who completed the building. The film presents a human portrait of the immense talent that made this national treasure. Written by
