WON­DER FULL

The daz­zling art and new look of Smith­so­nian’s Ren­wick Gallery

Where Washington - - FRONT PAGE - BY JEAN LAWLOR COHEN

Dis­cover “WON­DER” a few steps west of the White House. That’s the ti­tle and in­tent of a daz­zling ex­hi­bi­tion at Smith­so­nian’s Ren­wick Gallery—it­self a cap­i­tal marvel. Af­ter a twoyear, $30 mil­lion restora­tion and a re­think­ing of cu­ra­to­rial mis­sion, the 150-year-old struc­ture once called “the Amer­i­can Lou­vre” en­ters its lat­est in­car­na­tion.
