Exhibition Overview

This exhibition is our second attempt to tell the history of Washington art from the 1940s through the 1980s. It was selected by three curators, different from those who chose our first Washington Art Matters exhibition. Ninety artists will represent what was best of Washington art over those five decades. Curated by Benjamin Forgey, Andrea Pollan, and Jack Rasmussen.
