HOME: Selections from the Corcoran Study Collection 

November 14 - December 15, 2019

Tuesday through Sunday, 1:00-5:00 PM
 

Is a home just the physical dwelling or is it really where the heart is?  How do we depict home?  Is it a place, a person, or something indescribable?  HOME: Selections from the Corcoran Study Collection seeks to show many facets of home through photographic works recently returned to the Corcoran Flagg Building from works exploring Washington, D.C., the city many of us call home, to more intangible feelings of where we find comfort, to the idea of the Corcoran Flagg Building as a dedicated home for art.

 

The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery has collaborated with the Corcoran Study Collection and a GW Art History class, taught by Lisa Lipinski, Assistant Professor of Art History, to research and write wall labels for the works in this exhibition.  The project provides both hands-on research experience for students while adding to the continuing scholarship on the works in this exhibition, both goals of the Corcoran Study Collection.
