A $960,000 Congressional appropriation is set aside for the planning of the Smithsonian’s Quadrangle project. The Quadrangle or Quad will be a new museum complex that will serve as a center for African, Near Eastern and Asian cultures. This is the first federal appropriation for the project, whose planning has been underway since 1978 with support from unrestricted trust funds.
