The Kreeger Museum marks a milestone
BUILT ON five acres in Northwest D.C., the home of philanthropists David and Carmen Kreeger once hosted luminaries like Isaac Stern in musical gatherings enhanced by the couple’s collection of fine art. Today, the Philip Johnson-designed building, with its graceful lines and domes, is a museum for the public highlighting the art lovers’ Miros, Monets and Picassos, among others. This month, in celebration of the structure’s 50th anniversary, “RE-VISION” takes a fresh approach to exploring Johnson’s postmodern showpiece through the eyes (and lens) of six contemporary photographers.
The Phillips Collection Paintings “George Condo” examines the prolific painter’s creative process in producing highly imaginative works over a 30-year career.
National Museum of Women in the Arts Prints “Chromatic Scale” shows off Polly Apfelbaum’s bright improvised designs in oversized and woodblock formats.
National Gallery of Art Sculptures In the West Building, “Della Robbia” illustrates why this Renaissance-era artist’s work is so influential and collectible, even today.
