The Renaissance Dupont Hotel, one of the Corcoran’s hotel partners, is seeking student artwork to be exhibited in the hotel’s main lounge/lobby area this spring. Located at M Street and New Hampshire Avenue in Dupont Circle, the hotel is frequented by thousands of visitors each month.

The Corcoran/Marriott partnership involves rotating exhibitions of Corcoran student artwork in an effort to showcase local artistic talent while adding to the aesthetic of the space. Put a CORC in It! will open end of March, with installation starting the week of March 14.  Exhibition and reception dates will be announced at a later date. Following installation, we will celebrate with an opening with members of the D.C. arts community and press, as well as your family, friends, and instructors. This is a great opportunity to help build your client base and receive exposure.

  • Email your images and their object information— title, size, medium, and year created.
  • You may submit up to five images as JPEGS (resolution72 dpi), not to exceed one megabyte. Diptych, triptych, and works in a series will be accepted and may be considered one submission.
  • All artwork must be 2-dimensional and no larger than 3 x 5 feet.
  • Please be specific with the medium; for example, do not write “mixed media” or “painting”. Identify exactly what materials you used to create your piece, for example “monoprint, graphite, ink on paper” or “acrylic on canvas”.

We will submit a CD of images to the hotel for selection and notify you if your work is chosen. The lender agreement forms will be forwarded to you to look over as soon as the selection is finalized. Marriott does not employ a liability policy for artwork on loan; participating artists will be displaying work at their own risk. The hotel will take measures to ensure the safety of the art, by staffing a 24-hour security guard in immediate vicinity of the lobby.

For specific submission queries contact Lorelle Rau, College Exhibitions Assistant, at or 202-639-1856202-639-1856.
