GWs Luther W. Brady Art Gallery has been showcasing art on the universitys Foggy Bottom campus for 15 years. The new exhibition, Drawn From: 15 Years of Exhibitions at the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery, celebrates highlights from the gallerys history and the universitys extensive art collection and new gifts of work by Howard Hodgkin and Holly Trostle Brigham. Past exhibitions highlighted in the new show fall into three categories: historical, thematic, and major modern and contemporary artists. Collaborations include an exhibition with the Picker Art Gallery, Colgate University, followed by collaborations with the Reading Public Museum, Demuth Museum, Stetson University and New Art Centre in UK, among others have extended the ability to show artists of international scope. Beginning with Epic Paintings in 2002, ongoing relationships with New York institutions and major artists have brought the GW Community into contact with art never before seen in Washington. By joining university-wide initiatives, such as in Imagination and Knowledge: Centennial Celebration of Einsteins Miraculous Year, when Einsteins personal effects were on view alongside photographs of the man, scientific input from the Physics Department enriched the educational impact of the initiative. Exhibitions such as Enlightened Thinking, Lasting Appeal responded to a citywide celebration of French culture and featured Henry Bacons The Boston Boys and General Gage 1775, a major work in the GW collection. The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery is the professional showcase for art at GW. Luther W. Brady (B.A. '46, M.D. '48), the gallery's namesake and benefactor, is a world-renowned oncologist who earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees at GW. He also received the honorary degree of doctor of fine arts from GW in May 2004, has served as a member of the University's Board of Trustees and received the Presidents Medal in 2015. Over the past 15 years, the gallery has created a niche in the community fo...

The story of the American Civil War is not complete without examining the extraordinary and influential lives of Jessie Frémont, Nelly McClellan, Ellen Sherman, and Julia Grant, the wives of Abraham Lincoln’s top generals. They were their husbands’ closest confidantes and had a profound impact on the generals’ ambitions and actions. Most important, the women’s own attitudes toward, and relationships with Lincoln had major historical significance. Relying on a close reading of letters, memoirs, and other primary sources—and, for the first time, mapping the women’s wartime travels—Hooper explores their very different responses to the unique challenges of being married to Lincoln’s generals. This program is part of the D.C. Mondays at the Museum series inspired by the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection. Free; no reservations required.
