Renwick Gallery

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 17 May 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

One of my first photos that I captured in Washington, DC before even getting out of the vehicle. Pictured here is the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institute.

In 1972, the Renwick Gallery became part of the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s craft and decorative arts program. Named for the architect James Renwick who completed this masterpiece of a building, it was started in 1859 and finished in 1874. This gem of a museum features one of the finest collections of American craft in the United States. Its collections, exhibition program and publications highlight the best craft objects and decorative arts from the 19th century to the present. One-of-a-kind pieces created from clay, fiber, glass, metal, and wood from American Art’s permanent collection of contemporary craft are displayed on a rotating basis in the second-floor galleries.
