NEW YORK (AP) An American custom-made ceramic house made of ceramic will be on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.
A replica of the house that housed Eleanor Roosevelt will be shown on Thursday.
The Smithsonian’s collection includes more than 4,500 artifacts, including art, jewelry, ceramics, and artifacts from around the world.
The collection was created by a Philadelphia sculptor who was fascinated by the life of the First Lady.
The ceramic house was built to house Eleanor Roosevelt’s personal effects, including her book, “American Woman,” and a small collection of paintings, photographs and other objects.
It’s in the museum’s collection until 2020.
The sculpture will be moved to the National Museum on June 12.
