Corcoran Gallery of Art

The Corcoran Gallery of Art was an art museum in Washington, D.C. that is now the location of the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design, a part of the George Washington University. The Corcoran School, founded in 1878, hosts exhibitions by its students and visiting artists and offers degrees in Fine Art, Photojournalism, Interaction Design, Interior Architecture, etc. Prior to the Gallery's closing, it was one of the oldest privately supported cultural institutions in the United States. Starting in 1890, a museum school, later known as the Corcoran College of Art + Design, co-existed with the gallery. The museum's main focus was American art. In 2014, after decades of financial problems and mismanagement, the Corcoran was dissolved by court order. A new non-profit was established and the Corcoran's $2 billion, 17,000 piece art collection was given away for free to the National Gallery of Art (NGA). What works the NGA did not accession were donated to cultural institutions throughout Washington, D.C. and across the country. The Corcoran School of Art and Design was given to George Washington University (GWU) along with the $200 million historic 17th Street building along with $50 million. Provided by Wikipedia
