Description

The Renwick Gallery stands across the street from the Whitehouse and is the authoritative collection of contemporary American crafts. From woodturning, blown glass, clay, and metal, many one-of-a-kind pieces from the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries can be found here.

Originally, the building was the home of the Corcoran Gallery which started in 1859 but after the building was commandeered during the Civil War and after the Corcoran collection had grown too large, the collection moved out in 1897 and made room for today's Renwick Gallery. The Gallery is dedicated to the enjoyment and understanding of American art, celebrating the country's artists whose work provides a window to reflect on the American artistic experience.
