Renwick Gallery

The Renwick Gallery is a part of the Smithsonian Museum of American Art. Its mission is American craft and decorative arts, and is another of the many D.C. museums in striking buildings. The exhibit currently on the main floor is of art and craft from the Japanese internment camp (photography not allowed). Being installed while I was there is an exhibit on Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s Running Fence. There’s a wonderful variety in this museum too.

Glass:

There was woodwork, paintings, and much more.

And, one last post on D.C. coming shortly!

  1. All I needed was the title…the Renwick makes my heart sing! I have a friend here who is doing that sort of glass work on a smaller scale, I’m going to give her a link to your blog!

    1. It’s a great place – I only wish it were bigger, in that I could have seen much more of the great mix that was there! Is your friend’s work online? I’d love to see it.

  2. I don’t think she’s on line, I’ll ask her. She’s getting ready for a “6 week spotlight” show at our local museum that includes her glass work, if she’s not on line, I’ll ask if I can send you some pictures.
