Adolf Cluss Project, 2001-2010, Washington, D.C. and Heilbronn, Germany
Bill Gilcher and I joined City Historian Peter Wanner at the opening of the Cluss exhibition in Heilbronn.
The Washington's exhibition, "Adolf Cluss, from Germany to America: Shaping a Capital Worthy of a Republic" opened in September 2005 at the Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives, a Cluss building.
Both exhibitions employed many digital presentations. These visitors enjoyed viewing 19th-century stereographs of Washington with the aid of special 3D glasses.
