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.

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...

Americans are among the most generous people in the world. We rank second for helping strangers, donating money, and volunteering; donations from individuals, estates, foundations, and corporations reached an estimated $373 billion in 2015. Such investments have contributed significantly to advances in public health, cultural arts, education, science, and other public goods. Charitable giving, by individuals and organizations, is relatively free from rules of oversight and accountability, and is bolstered by favorable provisions in the federal tax code. But this arrangement, which gives donors great leeway and flexibility, also raises legitimate concerns about the effects of unfettered private spending on programs and activities that affect the general welfare. In an age of increased anxiety over the influence of concentrated wealth, the question of whether rules for philanthropy and charitable giving should be revisited has again become a hotly debated policy issue. We invite you to a public conversation on this topic with Chip Edelsberg, a distinguished educator and philanthropist, moderated by Michael Feuer, an expert on education policy and scientific research. Reception to follow.
