An Announcement from The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery
Dear Friends, Colleagues, & Alumni: We would like to announce the retirement from the George Washington University of Lenore D. Miller, Director, University Art Galleries, and Chief Curator, effective June 30, 2020. A familiar face to many of you, Lenore has served as a member of the George Washington University art world for more than four decades and her mark will forever be a part of the Brady Art Gallery and the GW Collection.
"I will always think of GW as family, historically welcoming and creatively rewarding. From my graduate studies working with GW faculty artists and historians to the many students I taught and saw accomplish so much in their exhibitions. I was privileged to know Dr. Brady for almost twenty years; and through his generosity and networks within the art world, met and worked as a curator with so many great artists..."
- Lenore D. Miller

MORE INFORMATION TO COME
Luther W. Brady, M.D. (1925-2018), the gallery's namesake and benefactor, was a world-renowned radiation oncologist who earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees at the George Washington University (GW). He also received the honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts from GW in May 2004 and the President's Medal in 2015. In a lasting gift to the university, he left a number of works from his personal collection of artwork by renowned American and European artists including Richard Diebenkorn, Helen Frankenthaler, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, and Jules Olitski to the GW Collection. Over 50 works will be on view.
