The Corcoran's Future Plans
Following the long period of investigation pursued by the Corcoran Board, there is wonderful news to report. The Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art and Design, the National Gallery of Art, and the George Washington University (GW) are announcing a proposed collaboration that would safegaurd and increase access to the Corcoran's iconic collection as a resource for the public in Washington, DC; maintain the historic Corcoran building as the renovated showplace for an important new program of exhibitions of modern and contemporary art; and strengthen and elevate the Corcoran College and its programs. The collaboration would raise the stature of arts education in the District and expand the benefits, services, and interdisciplinary opportunities that both the National Gallery of Art and GW provide to students, museum-goers, and the Washington community.
