A HISTORY OF ONGOING COMMITMENT
TO ART AND DESIGN EDUCATION

The Corcoran Gallery of Art was formally founded as a public institution in 1869 at the intersection of Seventeenth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. When the Gallery opened its doors in 1874, art students immediately flocked to the museum to observe, sketch, and paint copies of the collection’s famous works.

The Corcoran is committed to making art accessible to everyone with a desire to learn.
