US National Postal Museum at Postal Square

The Postal Square Building housed Washington DC’s main post office for 75 years. An historic renovation in 1993 made it home to Smithsonian Institution’s National Postal Museum, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and offices of the United States Senate. Working for legendary Houston real estate developer Gerald D Hines (who was responsible for the renovation), Rigsby Hull reinterpreted the building’s classic Beaux Arts architecture in a limited-edition print, and created the Museum’s grand opening announcements.
