Wear this stylish African American History and Culture Museum Ladies Corona T-Shirt and expect to be asked where you got it. Contrasting the rich brown African American History and Culture Museum Ladies Corona T-Shirt is a striking design that reprises the openwork architecture pattern inset within the Museum's exterior corona, or crown. 50% combed cotton, 50% polyester. Made in the U.S.A.
The artistic design accenting this African American History and Culture Museum Ladies Corona T-Shirt echoes two openwork designs ornamenting the uppermost part of the Museum’s architecture, the corona. The Museum’s bronze-clad corona follows the classical column form of base, shaft, and capital. (In the fine artistic tradition of the Yoruba of West Africa, the column, or wood post, was usually crafted with a capital resembling a crown, or corona.) The corona motifs celebrate intricate ironwork designs created by enslaved African American craftspeople in Charleston and New Orleans. Reaching toward the sky, the corona expresses faith, hope and resiliency. The 19th and newest Smithsonian Institution Museum—the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC)—opens in fall 2016.
Sizes, S, M, L, XL.

"Purchased this over the weekend as a souvenir because it is very beautiful. I purchased one size larger but it is tight. They should post this info in the gift shop."

"The XL was so small it seemed to be a children's size but it said women's. I returned it immediately."
