Washington Post art/architecture/culture critic Philip Kennicott, Architect magazine senior editor and Washington CityPaper contributing writer Kriston Capps and I are joining together to hold a public conversation on the Corcoran-National Gallery of Art-George Washington University situation. Our first event (there may be more!) will take place next Thursday, March 27,in the Washington Post’s auditorium at 6pm. You must RSVP to PostPOV@washpost.com to attend. (And RSVP quickly — this should fill up.)
I recently posted two semi-essays on the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the NGA and the Corc’s collection:
- What the Corcoran collection could mean to the National Gallery of Art; and
- What would a post-Corcoran NGA look like and do?
