Through July 27, The Corcoran Gallery of Art celebrates the reinstallation of its world-renowned collection of American art with this special exhibition, which provides a fresh look at the gallery's extensive American holdings. More than 200 objects in a wide range of media dating from the Colonial period to present day will be on view, organized into five themes that have shaped American culture: money, land, politics, cultural exchange, and the modern world. Featuring such artists as Gilbert Stuart, Richard Diebenkorn, Frederic Edwin Church, Childe Hassam, and John Singer Sargent, the exhibition is one of the largest and most diverse displays of American Art ever to be mounted at the Corcoran. In conjunction with the exhibition, the Corcoran Gallery will present a variety of public programs, including an American art mini-camp, exhibition highlight tours, and a campfire family weekend.
